Maurizio Sarri has insisted that Ruben Loftus-Cheek stay in Chelsea at least until January, after having held two rounds of talks with the midfielder.
Loftus-Cheek was angry because last weekend he was left out of the matchday-team of head coach Sarri for the victory over Arsenal.
His omission led to suggestions that the 22-year-old would ask to lend for a second consecutive season, with a number of clubs in Spain, Germany and France interested in signing Loftus-Cheek before the end of the month.
But Sarri said: "I spoke with him twice this week after I spoke to the club, so I think Loftus stays with us, we can talk about his situation again, but I think only in December (before the transfer year of January). "
It remains to be seen whether Loftus-Cheek returns to the team of Sarri for the trip from Sunday to Newcastle United, but the Italian added to the omission of the player against Arsenal: "It was only a decision about the positions. opted to put two wingers and only one midfielder on the bench. & # 39;
