Just a quickie to let y’all know that Fulham have confirmed Chelsea tyro Gael Kakuta has indeed joined the club on loan until the end of the season, after the 19-year-old successfully passed a medical at the Cottage yesterday evening.

Kakuta has only started five games since Chelsea forcibly wrenched him from Lens’ youth set-up 18 months ago (though the France U20’s winger did sign a new four-and-a-half year deal at Stamford Bridge last month), and it seems that Carlo Ancelotti is keen for him to stockpile his first-team experience elsewhere for the time being.

Good deal for all interested parties?

    he’ll do better at fulham then he will at chelsea, no doubt. it’s hard to fill in the shoes for injured lamps and the other mess of injured midfielders. at age 19 it’s good he’s going to a club where he should get playing time
