- Chelsea star Ethan Ampadu could be on his way to Cardiff City in January
- City manager Neil Warnock wants the 18-year-old defender on loan
- The Blues are currently occupying second position on the EPL standings
18-year-old Welsh professional footballer who currently plays for Chelsea has emerged as a January 2019 transfer target for Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock.
Neil Warnock, 69, is said to have told Chelsea chiefs to give him the central defender on loan when the January transfer window opens.
According to the report by UK Sun, Neil Warnock has been told by Chelsea that they would get back to him on the possibility of him to sign Ethan Ampadu.
But Warnock claimed according to the report that Chelsea did similar thing when he wanted to sign Tammy Abraham without the Blues informing him until he joined Aston Villa.
“I think they should loan us Ethan Ampadu
“Like Tammy Abraham, that was out this week. If they could get good players playing in the Premier League, that would benefit their development.
“Managers now, you have such a short time span in your job, you don’t worry about kids. When you can spend £150 million, you’re not going to worry about leaving out kids,'' Warnock said according to UK Sun.
Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Chelsea star Ethan Ampadu suffered an ankle injury which ruled him out of action for close to four months last season in the Premier League.
The 18-year-old defender suffered the horrible injury during Chelsea's 4-2 victory over Real Madrid in the Uefa Youth League.
