Chelsea youngster Levi Colwill, currently on a season-long loan deal at Championship side Huddersfield Town, has revealed his desire to succeed at Chelsea.

Colwill has admitted he is pushing himself to excel at Huddersfield so he can break into the Chelsea first team.

Colwill told Football London: “Leaving on loan can be a path (to the Chelsea first team) but it’s on me to perform. If I keep working hard, anything can happen in life. I just take it day by day.”

Colwill also admitted it was a risk leaving Chelsea on loan at such a young age but admits he’s enjoying his time at Huddersfield.

“It was a risk,” Colwill said, “but Huddersfield showed trust in me. I spoke with the club and about how they play and I felt it would really suit me. I thought I’d enjoy playing football here and I have.

“Off the pitch, it’s like a family. I didn’t expect that coming in on loan. But it helped me settle so quickly and it’s why I feel I’ve been able to play my best football.”
