Fulham push for loan deal for Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Fulham are pushing to sign Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek on loan.

Manager Scott Parker still wants to bolster his defence ahead of the transfer deadline, but is also keen to add England star Loftus-Cheek to the Craven Cottage ranks.

Loftus-Cheek has only featured once for Chelsea this term, in the 3-1 Premier League win at Brighton on the season’s opening weekend.

The 24-year-old has spent the last 16 months battling a nasty torn Achilles tendon injury.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard retains strong faith in Loftus-Cheek’s ability to get back to his best, but the midfielder could opt for regular football through a loan switch.
