Chelsea trio set to miss the rest of the season due to international duty

Three youngsters of Chelsea have got a call-up from Under-20 national team, and they will leave soon.


The Chelsea trio of Fikayo Tomori, Jake Clarke-Salter and striker Dominic Solanke are all set to miss the rest of the season due to the international call ups.

England under-20 head coach has called up defenders Tomori and Clarke-Salter and striker Dominic Solanke due to the U-20 FIFA World Cup that begins on 20th May. The U-20 group will meet up at the St. George’s Park on Monday before flying out to Japan on Tuesday, where they will spend a six day training camp ahead of the start of the tournament, meaning that they will play no further part in Chelsea colours this season.

Tomori is currently out on loan playing for the newly promoted Championship club Brighton and Hove Albion where he has played seven matches in 2017.

Clarke-Salter is also someone who is out on loan and is currently playing for League One team Bristol Rovers FC.

Striker Solanke is seen as a top prospect and is still playing for Chelsea FC but recent reports have suggested that Scottish champions Celtic FC are moving closer to a stunning swoop for the Chelsea striker.

The 19 year old striker has refused to sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge and it is just a matter of time before he plays under former Liverpool FC boss Brendan Rodgers. This could be a huge step for the player who is still a teenager. A move away from the Premier League will mean that he will get regular football at the home of the Scottish champions.

As far as Jake Clarke-Salter is concerned, he is someone who is capable of filling in for Chelsea’s legendary captain and defender John Terry who is all set to leave the club at the end of the season.

With the likes of Gary Cahill, David Luiz and Cesar Azpilicueta all ageing at the centre-back pecking order it is most likely that the 19 year old defender will break into the first team alongside teenager Fikayo Tomori.
