Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has warned Swansea City off midfielder Josh McEachran.

Swans boss Brendan Rodgers has confirmed their interest in the England tyro.

Villas-Boas, who worked with Rodgers during his first spell at Chelsea under Jose Mourinho, responded: "I was surprised that publicly other managers come across almost calling a player, because it shouldn't be allowed and it doesn't work like that."
