Player description
On Monday 5th October, the Club announced the season-long signing of Ruben Loftus-Cheek on loan from Chelsea.

A technically gifted, box-to-box midfield player, Loftus-Cheek has been with the Blues since he was an Under-8.

He enjoyed plenty of success at youth level at Stamford Bridge, winning the UEFA Youth League, Under-21 Premier League and two FA Youth Cups, the second of which he was captain for as Chelsea saw off Fulham 7-6 across two legs.

Loftus-Cheek was given a senior debut later that year in a 3-1 Champions League win over Sporting Clube de Portugal.

A Premier League bow soon followed, and he appeared three times as Jose Mourinho’s side won the 2014/15 title. Loftus-Cheek was much more of a regular in the subsequent two campaigns, featuring 28 times, with Chelsea again claiming the title at the end of 2016/17.

A loan move with Crystal Palace beckoned the following season, with Loftus-Cheek making 25 appearances as Roy Hodgson’s side finished 11th.

His form in South-East London saw him win a first England cap in the winter, and he was later called up to Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad, making four appearances out in Russia.

2018/19 was the powerful midfielder’s most prolific year to date as his goal tally reached double figures, including a hat-trick in their 3-1 victory over BATE Borisov, one of their Europa League matches en route to winning the tournament.
