Kakuta Joins Fulham on Loan. Aanholt Joins Leicester Is It A Good Decision??

    Kakuta to Join Cottagers While Aanholt to be at Leicester for remainder of Season

    Gael Kakuta joined Fulham today on loan after passing the medical examination. but most probably won't play as his new team has already left the London for Liverpool and also he won't be available for weekend's FA Cup match.

    And just after that news came that another hot prospect from the academy, Aanholt will join Leicester City for the remainder of the season.

Now the question is, 

    Is It A Good Decision to Send Them on Loan?

    Surely it is a good decision if you ask me. Many will argue that we already are lacking the depth in team and on top of that sending him on loan will further squad depth in question. But for me, it is very wise decision taken by the club. He is a bright prospect from Chelsea but because of somewhat already troubled season he hasn't got sufficient game time to improve game and hence most of the tame he has spent on the bench. Whereas at Fulham, he will surely get much needed game time as they will be in need of services of such talent and also their manager, Mark Hughes had shown interest in bringing him on loan so he will most likely feature in their first team.

    Another good thing is that he will still be in London, near the parent club and also the most important thing for me is that he will be joining Premier League outfit so will get the very prestigious game experience.

    Many fans are worried that not many of Chelsea's loaned out players return home, I agree with them cause of examples of Stoch, Sinclair, Santo and likely in case of Jack Cork and Mancienne but Kakuta for me is different case than others. Everyone knows what he capable of and also Ancelotti rates him highly and has said that he will be in his feature plans also he signed contract extension with the club last month so I don't think the fate will repeat like it did on previous occasions. 

    Talking about Aanholt, the same point can be applied that he will be get much needed regular game time at Leicester so that will be good for his own development and also Zhirkov is returning from injury so there will be back-up for Ashley Cole.

    So if thought from broader angle surely these two loan moves are good for the club as well as players.

    Would like to listen your views on this matter.
