1. Tammy Abraham : Has been arguably the success story of all of Chelsea’s loan army so far this term, scoring an outstanding 14 goals in 19 Championship games for Aston Villa. His strikes have helped the Villains bounce back from a sluggish start to the season to put themselves firmly in the promotion hunt. However, they may have to do so without the England international, who’s reportedly being considered for a recall by Maurizio Sarri. The 21-year-old, who struggled in the Premier League with Swansea City last term, is still eligible for Nigeria.

2. Fikayo Tomori: Also in the Championship, Tomori may well end up battling Abraham’s Villa for promotion to the top flight after making his mark in the second tier with Derby County. After 26 matches, Frank Lampard’s Rams are in sixth place, six points off the automatic spots. The defender has impressed with his pace and ballwork, even if some of the rough elements of his game have been exposed in the rough-and-tumble Championship. He has 24 appearances under his belt so far this term.

3. Ola Aina: After a loan spell at Hull City, battling relegation from the Championship, last season, 22-year-old Aina moved to Torino this season. So far, it’s proving to be a smart move, with the wideman largely impressing in Serie A with 16 appearances to date. He’s made the step up effectively, and is demonstrating his versatility with strong showings in both wing-back roles for The Bull.

4. Kenneth Omeruo enjoyed an extended leave after the World Cup, before securing a move to La Liga minnows Leganes. The defender has insisted that he wanted a strong challenge this term—reportedly rebuffing interest from Gent—and has made 10 appearances in the Spanish top flight so far this term. The defender faces a tough few months, with Leganes only four points ahead of the dropzone ahead of this weekend’s fixtures.

5. Trevoh Chalobah, the younger brother of former Chelsea utility man Nathaniel, is one of the more exciting defensive prospects in the Pensioners’ ranks. The Freetown-born stopper is currently enjoying his first loan spell away from Stamford Bridge, and will be learning a lot at relegation-threatened Championship side Ipswich Town. The former England U-17 captain has made 25 league outings so far, but with the Tractor Boys 10 points from safety, Chalobah faces a tricky six months.

6. Ike Ugbo moved to Scunthorpe United on loan this term after previous spells in the Championship and League One. The Anglo-Nigerian forward has scored one in 15 for the Iron so far this term.

7. Victorien Angban: After spells in Belgium with Waasland-Beveren and Sint-Truiden, and in Spain with Granada, Angban moved to France with FC Metz. So far, he’s been a regular for the Northerners in the second tier, scoring once and setting up two assists in 13 Ligue 2 outings so far. At the time of writing, Les Grenats are firmly on course for promotion; three points clear with a game in hand.

8. Charly Musonda moved on loan to Vitesse Arnhem during the offseason after last term’s temporary stay at Celtic—initially set for 18 months—was cut short after a lack of gametime. He’s yet to make his debut due to a knee injury, and the Belgium U-21 international—who’s eligible for Zambia—will be desperate for his fortunes to improve after a dismal 2018.

9. Fankaty Dabo spent last season on loan at Vitesse Arnhem, where his most notable contribution was an outrageous 35-yard own goal, and moved back to the Netherlands with Sparta Rotterdam this term. The Anglo-Sierra Leonean defender has made six appearances so far in the Dutch second tier, with Sparta in second place heading into the New Year.

10. Abdul Rahman Baba is now back to full fitness following an injury nightmare that almost completely enveloped 2017 and 2018. However, he’s still finding gametime hard to come by at Schalke 04, with the Ghana left-back having managed just two league appearances—amassing 163 minutes—in the Bundesliga so far this term. Report have suggested that the wideman’s temporary stay in Germany may be curtailed in order for him to pursue opportunities elsewhere; Girona and Villarreal are understood to be monitoring his situation.
