Todd Kane, a Chelsea academy graduate, has warned Chelsea young players getting loaned year after year to leave the club.

Kane, now at QPR, was one of the brightest young English right-backs when he was 19.

Kane was sent out on loan to eight different clubs in seven years. Chelsea loaned Kane to Preston, Blackburn, Bristol City, Nottingham Forest, Dutch sides Nijmegen and Groningen, Oxford and Hull.

Kane told The Sun: “Leave. I’ve had numerous bids from clubs coming in for me down the years but Chelsea would always just say ‘no’.

“I’d tell any young lad now to move on if anyone is interested in you because if you’re good enough to play for someone else, you’re better off taking that opportunity.

“When I was 19, I was rated as one of the best young right-backs in the country – and had I been at any other Premier League club back then I’d have been playing. Plenty of teams wanted to sign me.”
