Burnley loanee Nathaniel Chalobah has admitted that he is happy to extend his loan spell at Turf Moor, although he is confident of a future at parent club Chelsea.

The midfielder is currently on loan at his fourth club after previous temporary spells with Watford, Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough.

Chalobah has now been given the chance to play in the Premier League on a regular basis with the Clarets.

His loan deal lasts until January but the 19-year-old is open to extending his stay as he tries to pick up some experience before returning to the Blues in the summer.

Chalobah has admitted that he is desperate to use the loan move in a bid to impress Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

He said: “It puts us both in a good position, me and the club, we’ve just got to see how things go. I’m a Chelsea player and I’m always going to have that belief I can play for Chelsea, that’s not going to change.

“At the end of the day, there are world class players there at the minute and I’m still really young. Chelsea is my club and I think for every player that’s there, there is always the opportunity and I will always have that belief.

“For me coming up here now, I have to think less about Chelsea at the minute and just focus on Burnley because this is where I’m at until January, and possibly a bit longer, so I need to concentrate on Burnley.

“Playing in the Championship taught me a lot and Sean Dyche has given me the opportunity now to step up and test myself in the Premier League, so I’m going to give it everything I’ve got.”
