Barkley rejected deadline day loan move

Ross Barkley rejected the chance to join West Bromwich Albion on loan for the season ahead.

And now the 27-year old England international must reconcile himself to a place in Chelsea’s reserve side, at least until January when the transfer window opens again.

He spent last season on loan at Aston Villa, but failed to impress enough for them to make the move permanently.

However, their West Midlands neighbours, West Brom, who are bidding to make an instant return to the Premier League, made enquiries about his availability, only for any prospective deal to be scuppered by his wage demands.

He wanted  £110,000 a week,  a figure that was way beyond West Brom’s budget, and he remains in London.

With very little chance of forcing his way into Thomas Tuchel’s plans in the months ahead, unless he gets an outing in the EFL Cup, Barkley may want to consider lowering his expectations if he wants to get back to play regular football again.
