Chelsea's eternal loanee has recently opened up on his future at the Blues, quoted by Goal:
"I think now’s the time for me to leave, to find a place, to be my own man. I’m married with a baby now, so I need stability.
"Chelsea have done amazingly for me, and for my family as well, but it’s the time when I need to reach my potential and get where I think I deserve to be."
