Chelsea are notorious for their loan farm system, having made a habit of signing up young players from around Europe before sending them out to other clubs.
The Blues have been known to have in excess of ten players out on loan, and currently have 33 playing elsewhere.
Chelsea have often been known to keep players on their books long-term despite not including them in their matchday squads, with Lucas Piazon spending nine years at Stamford Bridge with just one Premier League appearance to show from it.
Daily Star Sport has taken a look at 12 of Chelsea's players who are currently out on loan.
Ghana international Baba Rahman has been at Chelsea since 2015, but has played just 15 times in the Premier League.
The left-back was signed from FC Augsburg in a deal worth up to £22million, and big things were expected of the youngster.
However, the defender failed to make an impact at Stamford Bridge, and has had five loan spells since joining.
Davide Zappacosta is still at Chelsea nearly four years after his deadline day move to Stamford Bridge.
The right-back was signed by Antonio Conte and was referred to as a panic buy, considering the £25m fee the Blues paid for him.
The 28-year-old Italian full-back is currently on loan at Genoa, having spend last year at Roma.
