Chelsea loanee extends Fulham stay
Chelsea loanee Lucas Piazon will stay with local rivals Fulham on loan until the end of the season. The Brazilian is one of 37 Chelsea players currently out on loan and has previously taken in loan spells with Malaga, Vitesse Arnhem, Eintracht Frankfurt and Reading, joined Fulham on a 5 month loan deal back in August.
Piazon has netted 4 goals in 17 appearances for Fulham this season and has extended his temporary spell at Craven Cottage until the end of the season. The 22 year old joined Chelsea from São Paulo in 2011 but has only featured three times for the first team – once in the Premier League and twice in the League Cup.
Piazon was named Chelsea’s young player of the season in 2012 after helping the side win the FA Youth Cup, but it appears that he has little chance of a future at Stamford Bridge, his contract expires in the summer.
