West London club Chelsea won’t be re-signing former player Nathan Ake during this month’s winter transfer window according to the publication via the stables of the Daily Express.
The transfer decision on Nathan Ake has been reached because of one Chelsea player as confirmed by manager Frank Lampard.
Nathan Ake is a Bournemouth player after he joined the Cherries from Chelsea permanently in 2017 for a fee of around £20m.
He joined Bournemouth some months after he spent a six-month loan period at the club during the first half of the 2016/17 campaign before the Dutch international was recalled by ex-Blues boss Antonio Conte in January 2017.

According to The Sun, Chelsea have until the end of this month to activate the £40m buyback clause in his transfer to Bournemouth.
Frank Lampard and Chelsea have decided to let that buyback clause end after the decision was made not to re-sign the player who made 17 appearances for the club in five years between 2012 and 2017.
He represented Chelsea in the Premier League just seven times.
Nathan Ake is the best defender at Bournemouth and his focus is to get his team out of the relegation zone with the Cherries two points away from safety at the moment.
