Levi Colwill has been a great revelation in the Premier league at Brighton and Hove Albion this season. The England International was sent on loan to the Amex Stadium by Todd Boehly last summer as part of the deal that saw Marc Cucurella arriving at Stamford Bridge.
Levi Colwill was supposed to join Chelsea's first team last summer, especially with the exits of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen but Thomas Tuchel didn't consider the Cobham academy graduate a first team material.
Fabrizio Romano reported in July last year during the summer transfer window that Levi Colwill will likely leave Chelsea permanently because Thomas Tuchel and Todd Boehly were planning on signing 3 Defenders.
Instead of giving Levi Colwill a chance, Thomas Tuchel believed that the Young Defender wasn't ready to play for Chelsea's first team.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Thomas Tuchel in August last year, said: "If there's a chance for Levi Colwill to have a good loan and develop and improve, we are open to solutions."
Levi Colwill was poised to leave Chelsea permanently last summer before the West London club offered him to Brighton on loan to reduce the price tag of Marc Cucurella.
This season, Marc Cucurella has been inconsistent at Chelsea. The Spanish Fullback couldn't play his role brilliantly at Chelsea while Levi Colwill was thriving at the Amex Stadium with Brighton and Hove Albion playing in the Left Centre-back and Centre-back position.
The silver lining is that Levi Colwill will return to Chelsea at the end of this season but, that wouldn't have been possible if Chelsea had gave him away permanently to Brighton last summer.
