On-loan Blackburn midfielder Palmer: I'm not focused on Chelsea

Chelsea loanee Kasey Palmer insists he's not focused on what is happening at Stamford Bridge.

The 21-year-old is currently on loan with Blackburn Rovers, where he has scored three goals this season in seven appearances.

Palmer's stay at Ewood Park is his third spell away from Chelsea in as many seasons. There has been plenty of criticism surrounding the large number of players loaned out by the Premier League club, but Palmer remains focused on achieving success with Blackburn.

He said: "It's about adapting to new surroundings and that's what I've tried to do in every loan I've had.

"All I can do is focused on my own career path.

"When I was at Huddersfield I focused on Huddersfield, at Derby I just got my head down and worked hard and it is the same here.

"Now I'm a Blackburn player I'm not thinking about what's happening at Chelsea.

"I will focus on what is in front of me up until the end of the season and once that's done it will switch back to Chelsea. I will give my all to the club here."
