Watford, Middlesbrough Consider Loan Offers For Ex-Kotoko Defender Baba Rahman
Chelsea left-back Baba Rahman has offers for a season-long loan move to Championship clubs Watford and Middlesbrough, with the EFL transfer window not closing until October 16.
The 26-year-old has not reached his potential since coming to Stamford Bridge in a £14 million ($18m) deal from Augsberg.
His initial struggles were made worse by a cruciate ligament injury at the African Cup of Nations with Ghana that have left him struggling to hit peak fitness ever since.
However, there have been positive moments at his three loan clubs of Schalke, Reims and Mallorca and now he looks set for his first loan in English football.
The full-back, whose deal expires in June 2022, is understood to be fully fit now and he has been training at Cobham with the loan group of players. They have played friendlies against Wimbledon and Crystal Palace Under-23s in recent weeks in an attempt to keep fit.
The former Asante Kotoko left-back’s move is just one of many that will be completed after the Premier League transfer window shut, with Chelsea still needing to offload a host of first-team and former loanee players.
