Chelsea’s 21-year-old defender Tomas Kalas is currently on loan at FC Köln in Germany but the young Czech hasn’t been featuring for the club’s first team; so the London Evening Standard understand he will be recalled. QPR are the side set to swoop if Kalas does return to London in January.
Tomas Kalas began his career at Sigma Olomouc in his native Czech Republic and after working through the club’s academy he began playing for his local side’s first team. Chelsea purchased the defender in July 2010 for £5.2m and has spent the past two seasons on loan at Vitesse Arnhem in the Eredivisie. Kalas played 66 times in the Netherlands but since moving to Köln this summer he has failed to play a single match for the first team.
Tomas Kalas is thought to have a big future in the sport so Chelsea are unhappy with his lack of action and are preparing to recall him. Kalas’ agent has said: “We have been negotiating the situation surrounding Kalas and there are a number of options in the UK and the Netherlands. One of them is QPR. We want Tomas to play regularly and would like to have his future sorted out before the start of the transfer window, so that the matter is concluded for all parties concerned.”
Harry Redknapp’s QPR have struggled at the back this season with Steven Caulker, Richard Dunne and Rio Ferdinand all failing to impress so far. Kalas’s young talent could certainly add a lot of promise to the Londoners so this deal is certainly one to watch!
