Chelsea midfielder Taiwo keen for Carlisle stay

Young Chelsea midfielder Tom Taiwo says he would like to remain at Carlisle United but only if manager Greg Abbott wants him there.

The 19-year old is on loan at the League One club until the end of December but says he would like to hang around and develop his game further in a bid to make his way in Chelsea's first team eventually.

"What happens with me next is all about what happens with the manager," Taiwo told the News & Star.

"He has been really good for my development and put a lot of faith in me.

"He is the key reason as to whether I stay or go."

Taiwo has yet to make his Chelsea debut but has made 26 appearances since landing at Brunton Park.
