According to Ethan Ampadu, currently on loan at Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, Chelsea has been and will always be his home.

The 19 year old has impressed while on loan at RB Leipzig and hopes to be back at the club next season despite rumours claiming Chelsea will spend big in the summer to strengthen the squad.

“In our sport, most people progress on talent and hard work — and that’s what I see at Chelsea,” the 19-year-old told the Evening Standard.

“Honestly, I pay no attention to the rumours [of big spending]. Sorry if that’s a boring answer but I’m just concentrating on my football and trying to get better every day. I followed Chelsea as a young fan until I joined the club as a player aged 16.

“From that point, I thought only about its future and that’s all I am concerned about. It’s my club, always has been and it will always be my home in football.”
