Fulham midfielder Lucas Piazon has revealed his frustration at being constantly loaned out by Chelsea and says he is desperate to find a permanent home.
Piazon, 22, joined Fulham on loan until January this summer - his fifth loan away from Stamford Bridge having also spent time at Malaga, Vitesse Arnhem, Eintracht Frankfurt and Reading and is one of 38 players the Chelsea have sent out this season.
"I'm tired of moving abroad," said the Brazilian, who joined Chelsea as one of the game's hottest prospects in 2012. "One, two, three loans, maybe that's enough. It's time for me to stay somewhere for more than one year.
"It makes no sense to go on loan all the time. It is not good for any player in my experience - or the experience of the other boys.
"I don't see it as a positive thing any more. To be in a different place every year is not good for me at 22.
"It's difficult to get a place in the team. They have their own players. You do your best, try to get a place in the squad, minutes on the pitch, score and create goals. That's all you can do."
Piazon revealed he has barely held a conversation with new Chelsea coach Antonio Conte.
"We haven't spoken much and we've said nothing about football," he added. "It's difficult when there's a big change. The Italian mentality is to train hard.
"They arrived and then went to Austria and then to the USA. The players have found the training tough but they're enjoying it."
