Chelsea have insisted that they will not be listening to offers for Ruben Loftus-Cheek, despite interest from Crystal Palace.
The 21-year-old is impressing during a season-long loan with the Eagles, where he has made 17 appearances and is playing an important part in their recent good form. He scored his first senior goal in a 2-1 win at Stoke City in November, and manager Roy Hodgson has admitted that he would like to sign the youngster on a more permanent deal.
He said: “The way Ruben’s been playing for us, he’s a player we’d like to have at our club, there’s no doubt about that.”
However, according to the Evening Standard, ?Chelsea consider Loftus-Cheek as part of their long-term plans, and will reject any offer that comes their way for the midfielder.
Chelsea’s signing of former Everton man, Ross Barkley, put Loftus-Cheek’s future with the Blues in doubt, with competition for places now fierce in the middle of the park.
