    Nathan Ake

    Nathan Ake says he is returning to Chelsea a better player after the club recalled him from a loan spell at Bournemouth. 

    The 20-year-old full-back has played 12 times for Bournemouth and notably scored a 93rd minute winner against Liverpool.

    “I really enjoyed it,” he told “From the first day I joined I was made to feel part of the group. Everyone took me in and welcomed me and as a result both myself and partner settled quickly.

    “Over the six months I feel I have developed as a player, both on and off the pitch. To start with I wasn’t playing too much, but I dealt with that mentally, kept going and was happy when I got my chance.

    “Of course the Liverpool game was the standout moment. It was a crazy game and to score the winning goal was an amazing feeling. It’s something that I’ll remember for the longest time. 

    “The ambition now is to continue to improve and break into the team at Chelsea. It’s a great team and the manager there has given me a lot of confidence, so it’s something I’m looking forward to.”

    "He’s developed players from the lower leagues to the Premier League, which is a huge achievement, so I knew he was well respected for that.”

    Giroud told French broadcaster Telefoot: "We are about to reach an agreement for an extension (to my contract).

  14. Conte to block loan move for Loftus-Cheek

    Latest gossip


    Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will not allow midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek to leave on loan in January, according to the Daily Mail.

    The 20-year-old is reportedly of interest to a number of clubs including Swansea, Watford and Middlesbrough.

    Loftus-Cheek has played just four times for Chelsea this season but Conte wants to hold on to the youngster after midfielders John Mikel Obi and Oscar both left Stamford Bridge for China.

  15. Ancelotti backs former assistant Clement


    Paul Clement and Carlo Ancelotti

    Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti says Swansea manager Paul Clement has the skills and quality to be a "top manager".

    Clement left his assistant manager role at the German champions to take the job in Wales and the pair have previously worked together at Chelsea, Paris St-Germain and Real Madrid.

    "Of course, at a certain point, an assistant like this, he wanted to be a manager in the Premier League," Ancelotti said.

    "He had this opportunity and I think he took the right decision to go there. I hope for him all the best, but he has absolutely the skills, the quality to be a top manager.

    "I think Clement has a different personality," the Italian added. "He's less quiet than me, but he has a strong motivation; really focused on his job. 

    "He's thinking about his job 24 hours a day, and the character is different. But we had a really good time together. We won a lot, but always we had a good time."

    BBC Sport

    Manchester United youngster Joe Riley is a transfer window target for League One leaders Sheffield United.

    Blades boss Chris Wilder is looking to bolster his squad for their promotion push and Riley, 20, is set for a loan move.

    However, the deal is not likely to be completed until later this month after United have played Under-23 matches against Manchester City and Liverpool.

    Riley has played twice for United’s first team, making his debut as a substitute in the FA Cup against Shrewsbury last February and starting the Europa League defeat of Midtyjlland three days later.
