Bolton loanee Gael Kakuta had no option but to go out on loan with the
Wanderers after seeing his limited chances at Chelsea.
The 20-year-old turned down the chance to return to Fulham, where he
spent time on loan last season, after asking the opinion of striker
Daniel Sturridge who joined Wanderers for a four-month spell in
January.

"When you're young you have to be patient because you have big players
at Chelsea that have lots of international and club experience," the
Frenchman said.

"There were about seven or eight players in front of me with
experience and that is the reason I came here.

"We will see what the coach (Andre Villas-Boas) will do, whether he
will keep everyone or move some players.

"But I need to play as I am 20 years old. I need to get some
experience and not play just 20 minutes a week.

"Bolton is a great club. I chose to come here because I think it is
the right place for me to come to improve.

"I was supposed to go to Fulham and at the last minute Chelsea told me
Bolton were interested.

"I asked Daniel how Bolton was and he said the people here were great
and I would enjoy it a lot.

"He said the coach (Owen Coyle) gave him a lot of confidence. If he
trusts me and gives me confidence I will be able to do my best.

"It will be a great thing for me to go back to Chelsea with more
experience as the coach will trust me more at the weekend and I will
be more of a first-team player."
