Chelsea midfielder set to return

Ahead of facing Preston, Andrey Santos is set to return to Chelsea this week after a disappointing loan spell at Nottingham Forest.

The 19-year-old midfielder has played just 97 minutes of first-team football since moving to the City Ground in the summer.

The sacking of Steve Cooper has not influenced the situation, despite Portuguese speaker Nuno Espirito Santo coming in as his replacement. Forest are also happy to follow Chelsea’s wishes to help continue building a positive relationship between the two clubs.

Crystal Palace and a host of Championship clubs are interested in the Brazil international, but the Blues are not said to be in a rush to jump into another loan move.
