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."
