Youngster, Mason Mount, is set to be recalled in the January transfer window following a disappointing loan spell with Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem, according to The Metro
The 18-year-old, from Portsmouth, is held in high regard by the Premier League Champions and is considered one of the most promising to break through into the senior team. A loan to affiliated club, Vitesse, was designed to improve his development but game time has been limited.
Mount has only started five league games for the Eredivisie side and despite featuring more prominently in recent weeks, Chelsea are set to terminate the loan deal and the 18-year-old will be returning back to the Bridge.
Chelsea are said to be ‘upset’ with his lack of starts and they feel he has not received regular exposure to first-team football they had hoped for.
His immediate future is uncertain and nothing is finalised when he does return back to England. Head Coach Antonio Conte could integrate him into first team affairs, as he has done with 17 year-old Ethan Ampadu. Mount could therefore feature during FA Cup fixtures amongst a busy January schedule for the Blues and provide useful cover in central midfield. Or, Mount could follow the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Tammy Abraham out on loan to domestic clubs.
