Norwich City are in the market to sign Chelsea midfielder, Kasey Palmer according to Football Insider.

The attacking midfielder is valued in this report at £4m and he is not exactly a stranger to City’s Sporting Director, Stuart Webber.

Webber brought Palmer in on-loan at Huddersfield Town when he was doing the same job there. Palmer has had two spells on-loan with the Terriers and he’s also spent time at Blackburn Rovers, Derby and most recently at Bristol City.

He is, I think it’s fair to say, a typical member of the Chelsea academy. Highly rated and snapped up from Charlton Athletic for a song at the age of 17 and from then on he’s been punted out on-loan to one club after another, just like our old mate, Patrick Bamford.

Eventually, the time comes when it becomes obvious that the player will not get a chance at Chelsea and they need to move on. See Bamford for the way this path leads a young player.

Having said that about Chelsea and the way they send about two hundred lads out on-loan each summer, with the Blues now working under the restrictions of a transfer ban for a few windows and with Frank Lampard and assistant, Jody Morris at the helm, it might just change, at least in the short-term because choices will be limited.

Palmer has been with Chelsea on tour in Ireland this summer and has reportedly impressed in a couple of games. Norwich have supposedly made their interest in signing him known to Chelsea.

This must be about the third or fourth window that City have been linked with Palmer so don’t get too excited just yet.

  • Chelsea change the way they do things, I won’t hold my breath. They change manager every season, the system is in place and not from a manager but the men in the shadows. Manchester City are around the same, it is totally wrong on different levels. Deny young players the time and experience they need. Robbing the game of talent.
    Perhaps robbing England of experience, we have had Chelsea youngsters playing for England when thy have not graced the Chelski first team or have had a handful games.

    As to Palmer, I would say, he must have the correct attitude as Webber knows him. But not sure I take it on board as our midfield looks well stocked to me, only area I would say is defensive midfield
