Chelsea defender Wallace back in Brazil on loan at Gremio

Chelsea's Brazilian full-back Wallace has returned to his homeland after joining Gremio on
loan until June 2017.
The 21-year-old has departed Stamford Bridge for his
fourth loan spell after failing to break into the first-
team squad.
Wallace, who has been capped by Brazil at U17 and
U20 level, joined Chelsea from Fluminese in the
summer of 2013.
He then spent the 2013/14 season on loan with Inter
Milan but made just three substitute appearances in
Serie A.
Another loan spell followed for the 2014/15 campaign,
this time in the Netherlands with Vitesse Arnhem and
he made more of an impact with 18 Eredivisie
appearances, including 13 starts and one goal.
However, he was still deemed surplus to requirements at Chelsea this season and has spent
the first half of the campaign back in Serie A with Carpi, for whom he featured seven times,
with just two starts.
Wallace's spell in Italy is now over, though, and he will spend the next 18 months back in
Brazil with Gremio.
