Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake has been linked with a January move to Chelsea.

The Holland international left Chelsea for Bournemouth about two years ago but Chelsea inserted a £40 million buyback clause in his transfer to Bournemouth.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard rates Ake to be a really good Premier League defender but he insists he won’t consider a defensive signing in January until he feels otherwise.

Lampard said: “Nathan came through here but since he’s gone to Bournemouth to play regular football, I think he’s done fantastically well and shown himself to be a really good defender in the Premier League.

“In terms of the defence that we have I’m very happy and it won’t be something I consider until I feel otherwise.

“We have to worry about Bournemouth tomorrow, Tottenham next Sunday, Southampton, Arsenal, Brighton, then the window opens.”
