Stuttgart Leading Hutchinson Chase Claim
Saturday, 25th May 2024 09:47

Bundesliga side Stuttgart are reportedly leading the chase to sign Omari Hutchinson on loan for 2024/25.

Hutchinson made a huge impression on loan with the Blues as Town won promotion to the Premier League, winning the club’s Young Player of the Year award after netting 11 times and picking up six assists in his first senior season.

The 20-year-old Chelsea forward’s form attracted the interest of English, German and Dutch clubs and, according to the Daily Mirror, Stuttgart, currently second in the Bundesliga, are heading the race having held talks which are said to have been productive.

Town have made no secret that they’d like the Jamaica international back at Portman Road ahead of their return to the top flight, most likely on loan rather than permanently, while Dutch sides Ajax and Feyenoord are also reported to be among those interested along with other Premier League clubs.

It’s unlikely Chelsea will make any decision on Hutchinson’s future until a new manager is appointed with Blues boss Kieran McKenna one of the candidates for the role vacated by Mauricio Pochettino earlier in the week.

McKenna is currently third favourite for the job behind former Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi and Leicester manager Enzo Maresca.

McKenna now 3rd favourite for Chelsea. Watch how he drops down the betting for Man U too. All bluster and clickbait rumour.
Remember Ashton: wait for the ub to announce stuff

Funny if KmK goes to KB Chelsea he may get his dream of Hutchinson playing for him.

If he does stay at Town then it’s a good possibility that Hutchinson may be at Town on loan again

Omari will have a say, and whilst there may be bigger options available for him (bigger than Stuttgart), you have to believe he would like, hopefully prefer, to come back to Town. HOWEVER, I think much depends on who our Manager is next season and so until Keiran commits to Town, I don't think we will be in consideration.

Sincerely hope we kick off in August with both walking out at Portman Rd. Genuinely think it would be the best thing for both of them as well as us fans, as these moments in time for any Club come but once in a lifetime, and whilst both will likley go on to bigger things, they may NEVER have THIS feeling and bond with Club/Fans again.

Stuttgart finished as runners up in the Bundesliga last season, above Bayern, and are in the CL. Hardly a small club. I hope he's back here of course but it would be tempting for him. Good luck to him wherever he goes

….don’t players have a say in where they want to play anymore?

The German league is not as strong as the Premier league as that premadona from Manchester United found out so would be an ideal step up for Hutchinson. The turmoil at the club is not helping our preparations for the Premier league and needs to be sorted next week. The fact that McKenna is talking to other clubs is a sign that his heart is not one hundred percent in the job at Ipswich so it needs to get sorted in the next few days so we can move on.

While playing abroad is a great experience, I’d have thought Premier League with a good coach is where he is going to learn the most at his age.

RegencyBlue added 13:20 - May 25
This is the sort of thing Ashton should be concentrating on, not having to devote his time on a situation created by McKenna and/or his agents!

More deflationary news

Dissboyitfc added 13:36 - May 25
He will end up somewhere not playing and will return to Portman Rd in January!

Are we all hoping for a big Man Utd win, Ratcliffe reconsiders their decision and ETH is awarded a new contract….

joyousblue added 15:50 - May 25
I agree blueytops man u are actually playing for thier manager , if they win the cup they cant possibly sack ten haag , chelsea will do what they sleays do apart from potter they go big foreign leaves brighton cmon kieran were better than them surely

joyousblue: Man U sacked Louis van Graal after he won the Cup for them, so I wouldn't bank on it. By the way, United have just won the Cup again, version 2024.

blueytops added 17:31 - May 25
Can you really blame KM for not being tempted, working with and developing young players such as Mainoo, to get them to play in the style that we have done for a couple of seasons and now to test himself with European football…
It’s been a great couple of seasons, but nothing stands still in football whether it’s players, managers or backroom staff who are ambitious and this opportunity may not be available next season…
If it happens, thank you, good luck and Man Utd will become my 2nd team as I look on enviously!

Steelmonkey added 18:14 - May 25
Joyousblue - just have a word with Van Gaul they sacked him after winning the FA cup a few seasons back.

therein61 added 18:39 - May 25
A lot of senior players who described K.M as "the school teacher" when he was at utd are still there and if he went there then it could be a rocky road for such a young and inexperienced prem manager he needs a couple of years in the prem with us to cement his reputation.

ImAbeliever added 19:57 - May 25
I believe that we will have an announcement by Tuesday confirming who our manager is. The owner is here to close it out. But, what do I actually know!

ImAbeliever added 19:58 - May 25
Wrong thread as usual, sorry.

KiwiBlue2 added 02:47 - May 26
A serious attempt by us to buy Hutchinson might help hold McK, especially if Man U either hold on to Ten Hag or move towards someone else rather than
Kieran. I do not see Chelsea or Brighton as being preferable to us for a variety of reasons, most of which have been canvassed on various threads on here.
I consider Man U is the major danger by quite some distance given Kieran's support of them going back to his childhood. I have no doubt that him taking up the hot seat there would be the realisation of a childhood dream and nothing any other club could do would be enough to retain him should he be somewhere other than here. Hopefully the next few days will see an end to the speculation.

Bomber added 19:48 - May 27
Since it now looks likely that McKenna is staying let's hope he picks up the phone to Omari & convinces him his future is with us.
