REVEALED: Surprise long-term role Chelsea boss Tuchel envisions for James

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel doesn't view Reece James as a wing-back long-term.

The Mirror says James should not have any concerns over his future under Tuchel because the German believes that the Three Lions star will develop into a centre-back.

It is a similar role to the one that Kyle Walker us often used in when England boss Gareth Southgate deploys a back three.

James could be Walker's long-term successor in the position for the national team if he learns to play in the position at Chelsea.

The report claims that Tuchel would prefer a wing-back who is more comfortable on the ball.
