Chelsea have loaned three youngsters to Swindon Town.

Charlie Colkett, Islam Feruz and Fankaty Dabo have all joined the League One club until the end of the season.

Colkett spent the first half of the campaign with Bristol Rovers.

The midfielder made 17 appearances for the League One side, scoring three goals, but he was recalled earlier this month.

Feruz spent the first part of this season in Belgium with Royal Mouscron.

And the striker made eight appearances before his loan was cancelled.

Meanwhile, Dabo, who has been a regular for Chelsea’s Under-21’s over the last two years, was expected to be loaned to Vitesse Arnhem this month.

But the 21-year-old will now move to Swindon along with his Chelsea youth teammates. The deals are subject to EFL approval.

The Blues will hope all three gain valuable experience at the County Ground, where they will be helping former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood.

Sherwood is director of football for the Wiltshire club, who have only one once in all competitions since victory in his debut match in the role against Charlton on November 12. The Robins currently sit 19th in League One, just four points above the drop zone.

Elsewhere, Antonio Conte decided to recall 21-year-old defender Nathan Ake from his loan spell earlier this week as a result of his impressive performances for Bournemouth in the first half of the season.
