Chelsea have reportedly decided that they are prepared to allow Gary Cahill to leave Stamford Bridge in January.
Cahill is currently in his eighth campaign with the West Londoners, but the Englishman is expected to depart the Blues on a free transfer in the summer.
The 32-year-old has played a key role in Chelsea's Europa League fixtures, but the centre-back has only made one substitute outing in the Premier League.
According to The Mirror, Chelsea and head coach Maurizio Sarri are happy for the long-serving player to see out the remaining months of his contract out on loan.
Cahill has previously suggested that he is relishing the chance to win the Europa League for the second time in his career, but his stance regarding his playing time could potentially change by the start of 2019.
