Ross Barkley wanted by Burnley in January

Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley is barely getting a look in at Chelsea this season, although surprisingly he has actually featured more than most of us expected.

Thomas Tuchel has called upon him in recent games to come on and make an impact, and he has done just that off the bench on a couple of occasions.

It would be amazing if you guys subscribed for my project over at Si & Dan Talk Chelsea, where we are putting out so much Chelsea content including DAILY Newsletters, exclusive news, breaking news, Podcasts, interviews, inside information, and bringing in some massive guests!

But the bottom line is he is likely to only ever stay as a super-sub for Chelsea, and at this stage of his career he needs to be a regularly.

Burnley could offer him that in January, according to a report from The Sun this morning. They claim that Burnley are willing to pay a chunk of his wages for half of the season in a 6-month loan deal.

They believe Chelsea could be willing to let him out as long as they do not suffer an injury crisis.

Chelsea are pretty heavily stacked in that position.
