“If we stay in the Premier League I’d hope he is here next season not at Chelsea,” Sam Allardyce said, as per Metro

“He’d be better off having another season with us rather than the competitive size of the Chelsea squad. He is learning and development level at 19 has been improved.

“I have seen a good player since I have been here. I heard how good he was before I came. I think every day and every game he plays in the Premier League he gains more experience.

“When you lose more than you win, which he is experiencing for the first time, it makes you tougher. More determined. At such a young age to get these disappointments week in week out it can only stand him in good stead and improve his career. He has been a good asset for us.”
