Chelsea Midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has revealed to reporters about his decision to return to Chelsea for next season’s pre-season tour after a successful loan spell at Crystal Palace.
The midfielder has turned out to be a great addition to the Eagles squad as he helped Roy Hodgson’s team to avoid relegation after a turbulent time at the start of the season.
According to the youngster during an interview with The Daily Mail, Chelsea remain his club and he is looking forward joining them by the end of the season for a pre-season tournament.
“… but as things stand I plan to be back at Chelsea for pre-season.” he said.
Having seen his exploits during his short spell at the Selhurst Park this season, Crystal Palace Manager Roy Hodgson has advised the team to make a move to sign him on a permanent basis.
The former Three Lions manager is reportedly hoping he could continue working with the young midfielder beyond this summer.
After his impressive season with Palace, he is being tipped by many football pundits to make Southgate’s World Cup squad for the English national team, who are fondly regarded as the ‘Three Lions’
Southgate is reportedly happy with his performance for Crystal Palace and he is ready to reward him with a place in his 30-man provisional squad which would be released on Monday.
