Queens Park Rangers have signed teenage Chelsea defender Michael Mancienne on a season-long loan.
The 19-year-old impressed Rangers boss John Gregory during a seven-month loan at Loftus Road last season, playing 30 games in the Championship and FA Cup.
Gregory said: "Michael had an outstanding period with us last season.
"I would like to pay a special debt of gratitude to Chelsea for allowing
Michael to continue his footballing education with us."
