23-year-old Middlesbrough defender has been strongly linked with a move to Chelsea, but the young English defender has said that he’s focused on the task at hand, and isn’t looking to impress Chelsea boss, Antonio Conte.

The Boro defender said: “It’s obviously flattering but I just concentrate on myself and staying in this team.

“I let other people mention me. My next step is trying to play a full season in this division and trying to stay in the Premier League. I’m not looking at anything other than that. I’m inexperienced at this level.”

Gibson is reportedly being scouted by the Blues, who are keen to sign a homegrown defender.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
