Can Chelsea recall Andrey Santos from his loan at Nottingham Forest in January? Answered
Andrey Santos has yet to play a Premier League minute since joining Nottingham Forest on loan from Chelsea.
The 19-year-old midfielder delighted Blues supporters during preseason, so there is understandable concern over his future.
Calls are building for him to return to Stamford Bridge in January, either to stay or to find a better-suited loan club.
According to The Athletic, Chelsea has such a chance due to a break clause incorporated in the loan agreement.
However, the current circumstances is not conducive to such an outcome. Chelsea is in continual contact with Forest and Santos in order to complete this transaction.

Twomey points out that Forest pay a financial penalty every time they don’t employ the midfielder when he’s fit, so if we want to recall him in January and they’re still not playing him, they’re unlikely to object. It’s also confirmed that he has a recall clause.
While this is cause for alarm, there is no need to panic just yet.
