Chelsea wants Lewis Hall to participate in Carabao Cup match

Graham Potter

Newcastle United’s left-back, Lewis Hall, can participate in the Carabao Cup clash against his parent club, Chelsea. That is scheduled for Tuesday night at 8 pm. According to Rule 6.3 in the EFL handbook, players on loan are typically not valid from playing against their parent clubs. That is unless explicit written consent is there.

The rule says clearly:

“Players registered on a temporary basis will not be eligible to play unless the Club holding his full registration gives its written consent.”

In a remarkable decision, Chelsea received the green light for the 19-year-old, Lewis Hall. That is to participate in the quarter-final clash at Stamford Bridge tomorrow. This surprising move comes after Hall made 12 appearances for Chelsea last season. Thus, establishing himself in the senior squad before making a summer move to Newcastle.

Can Lewis Hall continue his career at Chelsea?

The young player entered into an initial season-long loan agreement. This carries an obligation to purchase for £28 million, along with an additional £7 million in add-ons next summer. Thus, contingent on meeting performance-related criteria.

Anticipations point towards Lewis Hall continuing at St James’ Park next season; however, his limited game time, with only four starts, has raised inquiries about his future.

Lewis Hall, an international player for England under-20s, has featured in a total of seven appearances. Notably, in four of the starts he made, the full-back had to leave for the bench at half-time. Hopefully, he can get a head start in the upcoming matches.
