Chelsea’s on-loan defender Tomas Kalas has enjoyed a successful spell at Vitesse Arnhem and is currently pondering the next stage in his career as he think it’s perhaps too soon to make his way at Stamford Bridge.
The 19-year-old is likely to go back out on loan next season and recently it has been rumoured that Steve Clarke is interested in signing the player on loan for West Brom, and Kalas admits that the move is a definite possibility.
Kalas told Voetbal International:
“I’m not even the best player of Vitesse, how can I dream of Chelsea?
“You must come to your own club level, rise above and then look further.”
“I still have an intermediate step. Somewhere at the top of Germany or France, or at a mid-table club in England. Somewhere like Stuttgart, Wolfsburg, Olympique Marseille, but also West Bromwich Albion. That would be ideal. The step from Vitesse to Chelsea is too big.”
I would certainly like to see him at the Baggies with Clarke as the former Chelsea assistant manager has done a lot of favours for Romelu Lukaku, who is certainly knocking on the door to become our 2nd choice forward if not our first (which is bad news for Demba Ba, you’d feel). The two clubs seem to enjoy a good relationship in this way and hopefully the move would be a successful one for Kalas should he make the move.
