Chelsea defender Michael Hector, is currently on loan in the Bundesliga, with Eintracht Frankfurt.
The 24-year-old was a Reading player before Chelsea signed him, and he believes his loan experience can help him make the Chelsea team.
“I feel that I have improved my passing and defending, but I would have liked to have played a little more as I came to play,” Hector told Goal.
“To play at this level [has been useful], but ultimately, I’d like to play in the Premier League.
“Obviously a few people may have doubted that I could step up to the Premier League from the Championship [before my move], but to play in the Bundesliga in a good team, against good teams as well, I feel now that I have proven that I can play at the top level.
“A few more games between now and the end of the season will stand me in good stead for next season and to kick on.
“Back home they analyse my games and have seen a step up since I was at Reading.
“The decisions are getting better and situations are improving during the game and that’s why I am on loan: to improve.”
Hector is currently on a season-long loan spell with Frankfurt, and has so far made 11 Bundesliga appearances, scoring once.
