​Hazard lauds Chelsea youngster Loftus-Cheek

There may still be question marks over his own future at Stamford Bridge, but Eden Hazard has been quick to call for team-mate Ruben Loftus-Cheek to stay at Chelsea.

Speaking to the Evening Standard, the 27-year-old said having Loftus-Cheek in the team would be a "bonus".

"Ruben is still young, of course, but I think if we can have him in the team this season it's a plus for everyone," the Belgian playmaker said.

"I know his quality. He is young, he is powerful. The future will be top for him."
