Mourinho: Chelsea will add Loftus-Cheek plus a couple of signings

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says Ruben Loftus-Cheek will be added to his squad next season.

However, he is eager for several of their FA Youth Cup winners to move out on-loan.

Mourinho said: "We need a couple of players to give more strength in depth to the squad. With some of the young boys we have, I have said already that Ruben Loftus-Cheek will be a Chelsea squad player but the others after a fantastic year of preparation for them, training with us, playing with the young people, probably for them the next good step will be to go on loan and to be replaced by two players.

"We keep the same number of players because we don't want more than that, but we keep a more uniform group in terms of experience, to give us that little extra in case we progress in the Champions League."
