Charly Musonda might leave Chelsea to go out on loan and get some game time, while gaining valuable experience, after signing his new deal with the Blues

Musonda has extended his contract with the Stamford Bridge team, resulting in him staying in London until 2022. The 21-year-old is happy to continue working with Antonio Conte and is hoping for a shot with the first-team. The Blues youngster still hopes he can force his way into the first team and he will make a late call on whether to accept a loan move away, GOAL reports.

The Belgian player signed his deal with a new agent last week, and now he has a choice to either stay and fight, or go and learn. One of the reasons behind his hesitation is that Chelsea not always allow young players to leave the club on loan, unless they have a lengthy contract, and Musonda is considered to have a chance of forcing his way into the first XI.

Musonda will make a late decision on whether to move as opportunities could come his way with a busy winter fixture schedule over the next month, GOAL continues.

He was an unused substitute against Huddersfield Town for Chelsea, hoping for his chance to come. Head coach Antonio Conte was asked about the future of the youngster, as we are heading into the January transfer window. The Italian said there will be a decision soon.

“I’m happy for him because it was right to sign a new contract, and the club took the right decision on this. The player the same. The player took the right decision to sign a new contract with the club. Then, for his future, the club and the player will take the right decision,” the Blues coach said at Cobham Training Centre.
