Crystal Palace midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek in dark over Chelsea future

Crystal Palace midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek admits he doesn't know if he has a future with Chelsea.

Loftus-Cheek says he hasn't been told by manager Antonio Conte that he features in his long-term plans.

When asked if the Italian chief has told him he'll get his chance at Chelsea next season, Loftus-Cheek told the Daily Star: “Not at all.

“But I don't think it's right to because you never know how I'll perform this season. So, right now I'm just literally focused on Palace.

“He [Conte] said I need to play games. Chelsea is a big club and there's a lot of pressure which I understand.

“For me, I think it was the right time for me to go away from Chelsea right now and get my game time elsewhere."
