Wallace: Chelsea full-back set to go out on loan

Wallace signed for Chelsea from Fluminense in January, but stayed with the Brazilian club on loan before linking up with Mourinho's side for pre-season training.

The 19-year-old impressed in the friendly win over Singha All-Stars on Wednesday, but he will not be involved in the upcoming Premier League campaign.

Mourinho has sufficient cover at right-back and he also does not expect Wallace to obtain a work permit, so he will send the Brazil youth international out on loan.

"He's a very good player, but he won't be staying with us because we have Ivanovic and Azpilicueta for the same position," said Mourinho in the Daily Mirror.

"Because he is non-EU, we'll not get the work permit, it'll be too early, so he'll go on loan for a season.

"We'll get the best option for him, in Europe. We want him to adapt.

"He's very mature for his age, comfortable with the ball. He has the quality of a Brazilian full-back, likes to attack and create."

Wallace has been linked with a loan move to Roma amid reports he could be used as a sweetener following speculation Chelsea want to sign midfielder Daniele de Rossi from the Serie A club.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
