Chelsea boss Antonio Conte recalled Nathan Ake from his loan spell at Bournemouth following excellent performances for Bournemouth.
Conte admitted he is pleased to have Ake back at Chelsea and also revealed Ake has improved a lot.
Conte said: “Nathan, I am very pleased he is back with us. I think in his one year and a half (on loan), he has improved a lot.
“That shows it is important when a player comes from the academy and goes out to play on loan that they can be ready to come back and play with us. Ake is a really good example.”
