Starlet midfielder aims for long term Stamford Bridge stay.
Chelsea youngster Nathaniel Chalobah has said that though he would be open to extending his temporary stay with Burnley he believes his long term future remains with the Blues, Sky Sports reports.
The 19-year-old midfielder is taking in a fourth stint away from Stamford Bridge, having previously linked up with Watford, Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough in the Sky Bet Championship.
He has now been offered an opportunity to perform on the Premier League stage and will stay at Turf Moor until the end of the year at least.
And in an effort to prove to Jose Mourinho that he can cut it at the top level, he has hinted that he may be prepared to extend his stay there with the ultimate goal being a starting spot in the Special One’s plans at Stamford Bridge.
“It puts us both in a good position, me and the club, we’ve just got to see how things go,” he said.
“I’m a Chelsea player and I’m always going to have that belief I can play for Chelsea, that’s not going to change.
“At the end of the day, there are world class players there at the minute and I’m still really young.
“I’m trying to learn as much as I can with all the loans I’ve had and take as much experience as I can out of it, so for me it is more about developing as a player and a person and I’ll always go back to Chelsea and compete for a place and if it doesn’t work out I’ll take the experience I’ve had on loan and from playing games to push my career forward.
“To try and come here and give a good impression could obviously put me in a better position when I go back, but at the minute for me it is more about coming here and keeping my head down and working as hard as I can and doing as best as I can for the club and pushing the club forward.
“Chelsea is my club and I think for every player that’s there, there is always the opportunity and I will always have that belief.
“For me coming up here now, I have to think less about Chelsea at the minute and just focus on Burnley because this is where I’m at until January, and possibly a bit longer, so I need to concentrate on Burnley.
“Playing in the Championship taught me a lot and Sean Dyche has given me the opportunity now to step up and test myself in the Premier League, so I’m going to give it everything I’ve got.”
