In Jay Dasilva, Chelsea may already have the new Ashley Cole, this is the claim of Bristol City star Tomas Kalas, per report.

Dasilva joined Chelsea in 2012 and he went on the establish himself as a key figure for the Junior team of the Blues. He signed his first professional contract with Chelsea in 2015 and he has been sent on various loan spells.

The English left back joined Bristol City on a season long loan spell in the summer and he has been able to establish himself as a first team player for the Robins.

Kalas, who is also a Chelsea player spoke to West London Sport, where he revealed that Dasilva has everything.

“In the last three games, he’s impressed everyone,” said Kalas.

“He’s looking at his best and I’m really pleased for him. He has a calmness about his play and he’s always had that. In pre-season we were training together so I can see what his strengths are, and he’s a very front-foot player.

“He’s always thinking about what he’s doing and knows what he is doing. Even when he’s under pressure, he keeps calm. That’s his big strength.

“He’s a very confident player. He obviously knows that he’s a good player. He could become another Ashley Cole. There’s still a long way to go, but why not?”

We wish the lads well as they continue to develop.
