He added: “Growing up, I always wanted to come through at Chelsea and I always thought I had the ability.

“The journey has had a lot of ups and downs and it’s been tough.

“I’m very grateful and thankful I’m here. I couldn’t have done it myself, it’s been a collective effort, I’ve had lots of great teammates and coaches.

“So many people have helped me along the way. It wasn’t easy, like it might’ve looked.

“I didn’t go to Chelsea and just break in straight away. I had to go out on loan, I had many setbacks, and a number of injuries I had to overcome.”
