SHOCKER! Chelsea midfielder Loftus-Cheek: I've had no contact with Conte

On-loan Crystal Palace midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has stunningly revealed he has had no contact from parent club, Chelsea and manager Antonio Conte.

The 21-year-old is on his first loan spell away from the club, which has resulted in him earning his first two caps for England.

And while times have not been easy with the Premier League's bottom club, Loftus-Cheek says times were tough over the past couple of years at Stamford Bridge.

"I think in the last two or three years I've had to be patient," he told the Croydon Advertiser.

"It was tough, mentally, at Chelsea not getting the game time, but I had to be really patient and have the mentality to still train right and do all the right things."

He continued: "I've had no contact (with Conte). I'm focused at Palace for the season."
