The busy day of transfer business taking place at Premier League giants Chelsea has continued late on Thursday evening.
The Blues, of course, have taken their place front and centre in the headlines across the last 12 hours.
This comes amid ongoing efforts to both reinforce Thomas Tuchel’s ranks with much-needed additions, and clear out deadwood as well as young talent in need of regular game time.
In turn, when it comes to the former, Denis Zakaria has been brought in from Juventus, on loan for the campaign ahead.
In terms of outgoings, meanwhile, Billy Gilmour is widely understood to be on the verge of taking his talents to Brighton & Hove Albion, with Ethan Ampadu having returned to Italy, to link up with Spezia on a temporary basis.
And now, as alluded to above, yet another departure from west London has been labelled as imminent.
The latest Chelsea player set to move on? Harvey Vale.
As per transfer expert David Ornstein, 18-year-old Vale, held in high regard amongst the powers that be at Stamford Bridge, has linked up with Championship outfit Hull City on loan for the 2022/23 campaign.
This comes after the midfielder committed his long-term future to his parent club, courtesy of a new four-year contract.
