Chelsea starlet Lucas Piazon has revealed that he's finally sick of being out on loan, believing that the process of going to a new club for only a short period of time is no longer of any benefit to him. In short, it seems the Brazilian is ready for something more permanent away from Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea secured Piazon's services in 2011 when he was one of the highest rated young talents in world football. He officially joined the club after turning 18 a year later, but has made just three senior appearances in four years.

Now 22, he's already been farmed out to Malaga, Vitesse Arnhem, Eintracht Frankfurt and Reading, and will spend the 2016/17 campaign on yet another loan - this time with Fulham.


"It makes no sense to go on loan all the time. It is not good for any player in my experience, or the experience of the other boys," Piazon honestly told the Daily Mail.

"I don't see it as a positive thing anymore. To be in a different place every year is not good for me at 22," he added.

"It's difficult to get a place in the team. They have their own players. You do your best, try to get a place in the squad, minutes on the pitch, score and create goals. That's all you can do."

The short-term nature of loans has been difficult for Piazon to deal with, while the contrasting style in different countries took time to get used to - the former Sao Paulo prodigy thinks he could have achieved much more by now with a more permanent home.

In his own words, the player had "a great time at Vitesse Arnhem", but he found it much tougher in Germany where the focus is more on physical endurance than technical ability. "After the first game I lay on the pitch, almost dead," he then said of going to Frankfurt.

"I've learned it takes time to adapt and maybe with two or three years in Germany I could have made a better impact," Piazon explained.

"I still want to make it at Chelsea, of course. Maybe I can come back in the future. If that's not possible I want to go somewhere and stay for more than one season. Not just stay stuck in the club."
