Another player that Chelsea fans are confused about at the moment is Josh McEachran. Having asked to go out on loan back in the summer and being told "No" by AVB and that he is in his plans for the season, we are reading reports yet again this morning of a loan deal on the cards in January.

Now I have had my say on McEachran a few times already this season and that it looked to me that if he goes on loan it could be as part of a deal for Gary Cahill. However, once again it seems that Swansea are now also in contention to sign him on loan in this transfer window.

So why isn't he getting game time this season? One argument would be our results that have gone against us. As a result, AVB has had to stem the tide by playing a more or less settled side. Another argument has to be the form of Ramires and Romeu. Both are playing extremely well this season and have to be considered as starters now in every game. This leaves just one position left and with Lampard and Meireles fighting for that place, McEachran has to take a back seat.

So it's with surprise that I am reading reports that Chelsea are being linked with a £20m move in January for Everton's Jack Rodwell?. I have to say Rodwell does look a talent, of that there is no question but why spend more money on him when we have someone of Josh's talent within our ranks already?

I guess Rodwell is a different kind of player to McEachran. He is your box to box midfielder and could be seen as a replacement for Frank Lampard. Josh is your creative midfielder and maybe that's why we are being linked with the move for Rodwell.

However, if he comes here in January, is he going to play? Who's place would he take and would he be happy to come here knowing he wouldn't be playing week in, week out?

It could be just pure speculation of course but to me it seems that the McEachran story has legs and will more than likely happen. It's a shame really as I would have loved to have seen him get some action in the first team this season. For example as a second half substitute against Wigan instead of Mikel.

Let's see what happens in January. What do you people think of Rodwell and if it was you, would you keep Josh here or send him out on loan?
