Hutchinson in Team of the Week
Sunday, 5th May 2024 12:38

Town loan star Omari Hutchinson has been named in the final Championship Team of the Week of the season following his display in yesterday’s 2-0 victory over Huddersfield, which confirmed promotion back to the Premier League.

Hutchinson, on loan from Chelsea for the season, netted the Blues’ second goal three minutes after half-time and was named Sky’s Player of the Match.

Speaking after the match, Hutchinson was non-committal on making a return to Town on loan next season, but said the spell couldn’t have gone any better.

However, in March the Jamaica international said: “It’s going to be a difficult one and I don't know the answer to that, but maybe, I hope so, why not?

“Listen, I can't tell you where I'm going to play, we'll see in the summer what's the right move and decision for myself.”

Quizzed on whether he’d look to bring back this season's most successful loanees Hutchinson, Jeremy Sarmiento and Kieffer Moore for next season, manager Kieran McKenna said:

“For sure, it’s a special group. We’ve had success with that last year, keeping the group together, bringing in someone like George [Hirst] on loan and the way he’s escalated.

“Of course, we’ll look at all possibilities, we’ll build a squad as strong as we can but the players we’ve had in on loan this year have been an absolute credit to themselves and have been a really big part of the group.”

Hutchinson is contracted to Chelsea until 2025 with reports last week claiming the Stamford Bridge club are set to offer him new terms, while a number of Europe’s bigger clubs are believed to have been keeping an eye on the 20-year-old's progress.

I see the transfer rumour mill has started already... linked to a couple of players...Lundstram and Sheaf, but I think we should try get Omari signed up permanently if poss as priority.

We've got an extra £125m. Let's say half of that will go on wages. That leaves £67m more to spend on transfer fees. £20m on Hutch should cover it. He's only 20 so prone to inconsistency as we saw this season. No place better to continue his development. Will get more minutes, goal involvements, and exposure here than Chelsea.

Pochettino is a basket case. Had a couple of good seasons with Spurs, that's it. You could put Alf Garnett in charge of Paris St G, and he'd win the French league. That's all he's ever won despite his giant player budgets. Chelsea beyond Cole Palmer are a circus.

His form in the last three or four months is one of the main reasons we've got promoted. He's scored more important goals than any one else. Under McKenna he will get even better and i think Chelsea know this so i expect him to be with us for another season.
