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.

For their part, Chelsea and their fans will look for Loftus-Cheek to flourish at Palace and return to west London rejuvenated at the end of his loan spell.

Loftus-Cheek believes Palace are a good club with a strong group of players and he is eagerly looking forward to playing regular football and contributing to their success next season.

They give everything and I would like to be a part of that this season, and give everything I've got as well'.
