Feruz eyes Chelsea exit

Islam Feruz is seeking a loan move away from Stamford Bridge in order to gain first team experience, according to The Daily Mail.

The Somalia-born teenager has yet to make his competitive debut for Chelsea, although he has been identified as an outstanding prospect. Earlier this year he was given a significant contract extension, underlining his club’s hopes for his future.

Now boss Jose Mourinho sees a loan move as an ideal opportunity for the striker to gain some much needed exposure to senior football. The Championship seems to be the most likely destination for Feruz, with reported interest in his services from Reading, Derby County, Cardiff City, and Brighton and Hove Albion.

The 18-year-old striker moved to Scotland from Somalia as a child, and spent a number of years in Celtic’s youth system. However, he caused controversy recently after appearing to change his mind over representing his adopted country at international level.

Having already angered the football community north of the border when he walked out on Celtic to join Chelsea after the Scottish champions did much to help his family, he has now turned down a call-up to the national team’s Under-21 squad. This has particularly angered SFA chief executive Gordon Smith who went as far as engineering a change to qualification rules to allow Feruz to represent Scotland.
