Chelsea defender Nathan Ake spent the first half of the season on loan at Bournemouth before returning to Chelsea in January.
Ake revealed he has learnt a lot both on and off the pitch this season.
“At Bournemouth it was all about playing games,” Ake said.
“I played centre-back and I hadn’t done that in the Premier League before. I really enjoyed it because they are a good team who play good football.
“When I came back here it was a different challenge, playing with top players, fighting for the title and playing in the FA Cup semi-final.
“It’s been a really good season to look back on and I’ve learnt a lot on the pitch, as well as becoming more mature off the pitch, it’s been really good.”
