Chelsea‘s 21-year-old midfielder Danilo Pantic will spend his second season-long loan spell at Partizan, the club have confirmed via their official websites.
The Serbian star won the Serbian Cup in the last campaign before being named in the league’s Team of the Season.
Pantic, who signed for Chelsea from Partizan in 2015, spent 2015/16 and 2016/17 seasons in Eredivisie with Vitesse Arnhem and Excelsior.
He told Partizan’s official website: “I have two or three tough years behind me. Not everyone`s path is the same, some keep going forward but some find it hard.
I have no reason for despair, new opportunity is ahead of me. As soon as I walked through this door I felt love I didn`t feel playing abroad. I` m ready to train and battle for my spot in the team”.
It`s truly unbelievable I`m back. I thought it was never going to happen but you have to believe an want something hard for it come true.
I hope I`ll help our team achieve best possible results, I`m here to help Partizan in everything that awaits the club this season.
I didn`t have success abroad but that one great experience. When I was here my first term I was young and ambitious, it`s hard when you are just a kid. Now I feel true love for the club and being here means a lot to me. Can`t wait to start again”.
