Report: Chelsea ready to sell Todd Kane after Nottingham Forest loan spell

Chelsea are reportedly poised to let Todd Kane leave the club permanently.

According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea are willing to sell right back Todd Kane this summer, having fielded interest from Championship and League One clubs.

Kane, 21, has been with Chelsea since the age of eight, and whilst he has risen up through the ranks at Stamford Bridge, he has still yet to make his first team debut for the Blues.

The right back has been farmed out on loan on a number of occasions, to Preston North End, Blackburn Rovers, Bristol City and, most recently, Nottingham Forest.

Kane played just eight games for Forest, but flashed some of his potential - and now, Kane is looking for first team football, and Chelsea are willing to let him leave, according to the Daily Mail.

They report that Jose Mourinho's men are ready to listen to offers for Kane, as they realise the player needs to be playing on a regular basis at this stage in his career.

Return to Forest?

The Daily Mail report that a number of Championship and League One clubs have asked about Kane's availability, and Forest should consider asking the question to Chelsea.

Kane didn't feature much for Forest, particularly under Dougie Freedman, but he enjoyed a strong end to the season, which could tempt Freedman into another loan deal, with right back still a position of concern for the Forest manager ahead of the new Championship season.
