Hull City and Swansea City are among Championship clubs interested in signing Chelsea starlet Tariq Uwakwe, according to the Mirror UK.
The left-footed midfielder of Nigerian descent continues to be linked with a temporary departure from Stamford Bridge in the January transfer window, and Derby County have also been credited with an interest.
Uwakwe is eager to move out on loan to enable him get the chance to play first team football, which Chelsea have not offered him for now.

The 20-year-old opened his Chelsea account this term as the U23 team defeated Manchester City 2-1 in the Premier League 2 on Saturday, January 11.
Uwakwe has played non-binding games for England U18, U19 and U20 national teams.
