On loan Chelsea star Ethan Ampadu has confirmed that his focus is only on returning to Chelsea and making the first team.

Ampadu who is on loan at RB Leipzig in Germany is certain about where his future lies amid transfer speculations.

“In our sport most people progress on talent and hard work — and that’s what I see at Chelsea,” Ampadu told Standard Sport.

“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.

“It is great to see that [the other young players] are doing so well. They all have great talent and deserve every minute they get pitch time. It shows that young players under a young manager who believes in them can be successful in the Premier League.

“I'm in touch a little [with the other young players], and it’s been a great season for some of the younger players because the manager has shown such faith in them and so far, it’s turning out well.

“It points to an exciting future for the club. But my focus is at Leipzig until May and then the European finals with Wales.”

Ampadu would be hoping to be as lucky as Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount who spent last season on loan at Derby County and came back to become first XI regulars at Chelsea.
