Chelsea prospect Tino Anjorin is set to join Huddersfield Town until the end of the season after cutting short his loan spell at Lokomotiv Moscow.
Anjorin, 20, has been recovering from a broken metatarsal for the past couple months and is to move to the Championship side instead of heading back to the Russian capital.
During his time for Lokomotiv, he made just two starts in the Russian Premier League.
Chelsea midfielder Tino Anjorin is to join Huddersfield Town on-loan for the season
The 20-year-old cut short his Lokomotiv Moscow loan deal to join the Championship side
He was briefly linked with Southampton, but they will be made to wait with their attempts until the summer should they look to secure his services.
The Saints have previously raided Chelsea for young defender Tino Livramento signing him on a permanent deal.
They also swooped for Armando Broja, who joined the South Coast club on loan until the end of the current campaign.
Anjorin was dubbed the ‘next Kevin De Bruyne’ by Manchester United interim-manager Ralf Rangnick when the Red Devils boss was Head of Sports and Development with the Russian club.
The Poole-born youngster made his Chelsea debut as an 18-year-old in the Blues’ 7-1 win over Grimsby Town in the Carabao Cup in September 2019.
He has made one Premier League appearance for Chelsea, coming off the bench in a 4-0 win over Everton in March 2020 under Frank Lampard.

Anjorin will join Levi Colwill, who has been impressive under Carlos Corberan, at Huddersfield
Thomas Tuchel gave him a chance when he came off the bench against Barnsley in the FA Cup last season.
Anjorin will now head to West Yorkshire to join fellow Chelsea loanee Levi Colwill and help the Terriers’ promotion push.
Carlos Corberan’s side are currently seventh, just outside the play-off spots.
