    Last season Cork spent at Burnley on loan where he managed to have some of the first team action under his belt but it seems to be not enough for him to earn the place at some-what vacant Chelsea midfield.


    The new destination for Cork seems to be Swansea which is managed by the then Chelsea youth coach Brandon Rodgers who rates him high and wants to give him good first team action upcoming season.
