Chelsea attacking midfielder Charly Musonda is reluctant to join another English club on loan during the January transfer window, according to Het Laatste Nieuws.

The Belgian publication reports that the 21 year old is keen on a move abroad rather than staying in the Premier League. The Blues are said to want the midfielder to gain first team experience in this country to ensure he adapts to the English style of play.

The Daily Telegraph report that Musonda is being pursued by four Premier League clubs: Bournemouth, Watford, Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion, but the player is said to want a return to Spain.

He played for Real Betis on loan between January 2016 and January 2017 before returning to Stamford Bridge. The Belgian has struggled for first team opportunities since coming back from his spell in La Liga, but he signed a new four and a half year contract to stay at Chelsea back in December.
