Chelsea striker David Datro Fofana, previously forgotten, recalled from Champions League side and headed on loan to Premier League rivals

Introduction to the article:
The article discusses the reported loan move of Chelsea star David Datro Fofana to Burnley. Having only made one start for The Blues since joining the club, Fofana is set to join Burnley on loan for the remainder of the season.

Fofana’s Loan Deal with Burnley

The 21-year-old, who joined Chelsea for £8 million a year ago, is set to join Burnley on loan according to The Athletic. Fofana’s time at Union Berlin in the Bundesliga has come to an end to facilitate this move, with the Ivorian set to undergo a medical with Burnley.

Premier League Experience for Fofana

It is reported that Chelsea see the loan to Burnley as an opportunity for Fofana to gain valuable Premier League experience, and believe it is essential for his development as a player. Despite interest from La Liga club Sevilla, it seems Burnley have secured the deal for the forward.

Deal Terms and Player Performance

Burnley will reportedly cover 100% of Fofana’s wages during the loan spell, with no option for a permanent deal in the summer. Fofana managed two goals and one assist in 17 appearances for Union Berlin in the first half of the season, prior to the premature end of his loan with them.
