Hull City manager Leonid Slutsky has spoken to Chelsea about taking a few of their players on loan next season, according to Sky Sports News HQ.
Leonid Slutsky is hoping to use his Russian connection with Chelsea’s billionaire owner Roman Abramovic to snap up some promising young stars for Hull City next season.
Slutsky, who was formerly the manager of CSKA Moscow and the Russian national team, is a personal friend of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovic.
Abramovic has helped Slutsky learn English and settle into life in England, according to this report.
The new Hull gaffer will now look to take advantage of this relationship and sign some of Chelsea’s prize youngsters on loan next season.
Chelsea are renowned for loaning out most of their youngsters with more than thirty players spending temporary stints away from Stamford Bridge in each of the last three years.
A number of Chelsea stars lit up the Championship last season.
Huddersfield Town duo Kasey Palmer and Izzy Brown were instrumental in the Terriers’ promotion whilst teenage sensation Tammy Abraham hit 23 league goals to fire Bristol City to safety.
Hull City manager Leonid Slutsky will be hoping to bring in a number of players from Chelsea who can make a similar impact to those three.
A Championship club can loan in up to four players from one team and this could be an avenue Slutsky will explore this season.
