Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has joined Crystal Palace on a season-long loan, while Nathaniel Chalobah could be following in a permanent exit.

Loftus-Cheek is the 11th Chelsea player to sign a loan elsewhere in this transfer window, following the likes of Tammy Abraham, Ola Aina and Kasey Palmer out of the club.

The 21-year-old told Palace's official website: 'I had the option of coming here and I thought it would be great for me.

He has won two Premier League titles with Chelsea and Jose Mourinho began to put him into the team during the 2014-15 campaign, famously saying he would become a full England global.

Chelsea's Lofuts-Cheek, 21, becomes new Palace manager Frank de Boer's first signing since the Dutchman was appointed last month.
