Chelsea goalkeeper Nathan Baxter has suggested that he would be ‘open’ to leaving the Blues for loan employers Hull City should the opportunity arise.

Baxter impressed in his fourth successive Championship game for the Tigers on Saturday, as Grant McCann’s men beat Millwall 2-1 to maintain their remarkable upturn in fortunes.

“I still have ambitions to play for Chelsea, that’s been my dream since the age of seven when I joined the club,” Baxter told BBC Radio Humberside.

“That said, I love living in the area up here, I’ve met a lot of fans out in the town and it’s a real community club I think.

“I’ve loved playing in front of the fans and have received a brilliant reception – I thought the support on Wednesday night (at Cardiff) was unbelievable.

“A late away night at Cardiff with all the Covid pass stuff, the turnout was incredible and I thought they out sung the Cardiff fans.

“The support we have received all year has been great.

“If and when that decision is made, obviously it’s something that I’m open to but with football, it’s just a case of taking it game by game.

“That’s what I feel like I’ve done, focused on my performance and focus on helping “the side, little bits of information I can give to the lads to help us win games and that’s my focus.”
