Nathan Ake was recalled to the Chelsea squad, from his loan spell with Bournemouth, and has been handed Baba Rahman’s jersey number 6.

Rahman wore the number 6 shirt during his first season at Chelsea, before leaving on a season-long loan to Bundesliga side, Schalke.

The defender played just 15 Premier League games for the Blues last season after arriving from Freiburg for £14 million.

Ake, who’ll now wear the number 6 jersey, missed the squad to play Leicester City last week, and is in line to be in the squad to play Hull City on Sunday.
