Mount: Chelsea loan development path making of me

Chelsea's loan development path is appreciated by Mason Mount.

The Chelsea midfielder says his time away from the club was ideal for his progress.

He told the Daily Mail: "My development at every age group was good. If I was playing in one age group, I always wanted to play the year above. And then it came to the stage where I was in the [Under-] 23s and I needed that extra push.' He went to Vitesse Arnhem for a year and then to Derby, under Frank Lampard.

"I went to Holland and had a good season where I learned a lot about a different type of football. And then going to the Championship. We all know what that's like, how tough it is.

"And that added a different part to my game. And then back to Chelsea and giving it a really good go. And it just happened."
