Chelsea chief Kenyon: Focus now on English talent

Chelsea chief Peter Kenyon admits they're attempting to uncover more English talent.

"Realigning the scouting system was about looking at where we want to be," he said. "We've made a commitment to having the core of our team English; we are developing our youth.

"The rules from Uefa on home-grown players and Fifa's proposal for 6+5 puts a real onus on clubs to develop their own talent much more fully. With that comes a lot of benefits, and so we looked at our scouting programme to be more focused."
