Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has been given assurances regarding his future at the club according to latest reports.
The reports say the Stamford Bridge club has no plan of selling the 21-year old, currently on loan at fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace.
Following the signing of Ross Barkley from Everton earlier this month, there had been reports that his future at the club could be over. Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson even came out to declare his interest in signing the player on a permanent basis.
These latest reports, however, have debunked any talk of a transfer away for Loftus-Cheek even with Barkley at the club as they are looking to have both players together in the team.
Midfield performances have left some fans unsatisfied in recent times with the likes of Danny Drinkwater and Tiemoue Bakayoko only showing their qualities on few occasions this season and calls for the recall of Loftus-Cheek have increased given his brilliant displays for Palace.
Loftus-Cheek meanwhile had earlier this season stirred up talk of a permanent move away from Chelsea as he suggested he had been held back by the club.
“I think in the last two or three years I’ve had to be patient,” he said back in November. “It was tough mentally, at Chelsea not getting the game time, but I had to be really patient and have the mentality to still train right and do all the right things.”
Given these comments it is still unknown if these assurances are enough to keep the young Midfielder from looking for a move away from Chelsea.
