Just watch his games. Go back and watch him playing alongside the likes of Christensen or even Terry when he played some games for the youth on the road back to recovery, and you'll see he's far, far closer to their shoulders/eyebrows/whatnot than Kante is beside the same players, for example. 

Chelsea had him listed as 5'4 only in a 2014/2015 youth yearbook when he was 15/16. And many noted the following seasons he'd started getting bigger. I can't find an official Chelsea record from this or last year that states his height. So, no records since the time he was literally too young to buy cigarettes. I was 5'4 then too :wub:

 

The year book is from this season as you can see in that tweet and as Stats confirmed. So you're wrong. Don't let facts get in the way though.

I can't believe Charlton took him on loan fully knowing his height issue and then not playing him because of his height issues. Must be something else.

They took him on loan because he was impressive for our U23 and is obviously very talented but after being seen in training, maybe their manager feels he is not ready physically imo. Playing at U23 and then going to play in a big mens league is totally different. Even if Charlton have a game in weekend then in week, he still does not get game time. Maybe the manager feels he is not as good as was expected to be but I feel his height is what will restrain him unfortunately. Really bizarre that he can't get into a struggling League 1 team.

IMO our biggest prospect. Had a shaky start to his loan (Charlton Athletic); has turned into the team's best player according to fans. It was stupid to loan him to League 1.

Yep, wasn't a fan of him going back to league 1. All well and good him doing well but..if we're serious about his ceiling being a part of this squad he has a hell of a long way to go, and he's already 20, turning 21 this year I believe ?

We can be sure that the club arranged the best loan they could. Why would they send him to a lower status club if a higher level team wanted him, and were offering realistic prospects that he’d actually play? If the place he’s being offered minutes is in League 1, it’s League 1. Playing at Charlton is more useful than sitting on the bench for a better team .

What counts is that Jay performs well enough at whatever level he’s in to earn progression.

Agree. We sent Wallace to Intern Milan which was ridiculous.

Not quite as ridiculous as having signed him in the first place, but yes, I agree.
