News today that Newcastle are interested in taking the 21 year-old Chelsea and Czech Republic center-back Tomas Kalas on loan next season.
Tomas Kalas – Mourinho wants him to get first team games on loan
Kalas was the 21 year-old who made his debut for Chelsea in the match at Liverpool, where he had an excellent game, and looked like he had been playing for the Chelsea first team for years.
He’s played for all the Czech Republic youth sides, and once for the full Czech side, and has been at Chelsea since 2010, when he signed on for a reported £5.2M, from Sigma Olomouc, but stayed there on loan for the following 2010–2011 season.
Jose Mourinho wants his player to get some first team games next season, and a loan spell at Newcastle United may do the trick, but Hull City and Aston Villa are also interested.
There have also been several Bundesliga clubs, who are keen to take him on loan next season, and the 6′ tall player can also play at right back.
Kalas was on loan at Dutch club Vitesse from 2011 to 2013 and played 58 times for them in total.
He seems to be an up and coming defender, and Newcastle need to bring in defensive reinforcements this summer, since we’ve conceded 65 goals and 59 goals in the last two Premier league seasons.
That’s simply far too many goals to concede, if we want to finish in the top six.
