Chelsea have recalled Kasey Palmer and Ike Ugbo from their respective loan spells.

Both players moved on season-long deals during the summer but Chelsea have taken up options to bring them back this month.

Midfielder Palmer, 21, played a key role in Huddersfield’s promotion to the top flight last season but has started just one Premier League match since returning to the Yorkshire club for a second loan spell.

Palmer (pictured above) has been troubled by injury and his last appearance for the Terriers, against Everton a month ago, is his only outing since August.

Striker Ugbo, 19, made 18 appearances for Barnsley, scoring once.
