Chelsea goalkeeper, who spent last season on a loan deal at League Two side Sheffield United, Jamal Blackman is reportedly hoping to remain with the club for next season.
The Englishman enjoyed a fruitful season at the club, helping them get a promotion to Championship next season.
Blackman wasn’t consider good enough to be Chelsea’s first-choice goalie ahead Thibaut Courtois, but the England international was integrated into the Blades’ starting lineup by their manager Chris Wilder during the previous season.
The manager, who is expected to make some high-profile signings in the ongoing transfer market, is hoping to sign him on permanent basis so as to be rest assured that his goalkeeping department has been sorted out before the start of next season.
The 24-year-old netminder appeared in 31 League matches for the Blades throughout last term and he wants to continue working with Chris Wilder in the coming season, according to reports via The Sheffield Star.
However, Chelsea are not poised to grant his wishes in the summer but the Blues might consider another loan move to the Bramall Lane outfits.
Though Blackman was denied the opportunity to showcase his qualities by Chelsea, he is highly rated by the Stamford Bridge outfits and they are not considering letting him leave on permanent deal this summer.
