"Ultimately, I've no malice towards managers who didn't give me a chance," said Chalobah to the Daily Mail.
"I try to focus on myself and work as hard as I can. If you have done that and the opportunity hasn't arisen, then you think of the next step. I have taken something from every single loan.
"I played a lot of games for Watford and we got to Wembley in the play-offs.
"The Burnley loan made me grow up as a man - living away from home and in a regimented team. The Nottingham Forest loan was another learning curve after such a good season at Watford, going there and not playing.
"I've never really had the opportunity to show all the improvements I've made by playing a full season. Maybe this is the year.
"There was a little glimpse last year but five games just isn't enough. I don't like talking too far ahead, saying I'm going to do this and that, and then it doesn't happen. But I'm working towards that. Fingers crossed.
"I'm back in full training. So it's now a matter of time."
