Chelsea do not have an opportunity to recall Ethan Ampadu from his loan stint at RB Leipzig during the winter transfer window.
The Blues loaned out the teenage centre-back to the Bundesliga outfit last summer, but the Wales international has found playing time difficult to come by in Germany.
He has made just two matches from the bench thus far and has primarily been warming the bench at Leipzig in first half of the campaign.
Frank Lampard’ side are believed to be frustrated by the starlet not getting enough matches in Germany, but they have little option but to think that the situation gets better.
According to The Athletic, the loan deal between the two clubs does not have an opportunity for Chelsea to recall him early during the winter transfer window.
Wales boss Ryan Giggs has also revealed his worries about watching Ampadu wasting a campaign on the bench in Germany.
Ampadu appears to be yet to ultimately convince Leipzig coach Julien Nagelsmann about his ability, but his recent replacement appearances suggest that he could get more opportunities.
The Chelsea starlet has impressed the coaching staff at Leipzig with his work ethic in training and his tackling skills.
But Leipzig are still unsure about his ability on the ball, particularly when it comes to featuring in their midfield.
