He said: "I don't know what is going to happen in the more immediate future but, long-term, I want to make it with Chelsea.
"Someone from Chelsea comes to watch me in all the home games and some of the away matches too, so it's up to me to perform.
"But Chelsea is my club. As a kid my favourite player was Marcel Desailly. I was privileged enough to watch him train and put aspects of his game into mine. Now I admire JT. I want to establish myself alongside him one day."
