I'll Prove That Am Ready For A Return To Stamford Bridge - Nigerian Youngster Set For Chelsea Return

Chelsea youngster Ike Ugbo has expressed his love and admiration for The Blues as he gears up for a return to Stamford Bridge after leaving Blues Reserves back in 2017.

The 22-year-old began his career with Chelsea U-10s and continued with the Blues until his final promotion to the U-23s, but struggled for match fitness and consistency during his time with the Chelsea reserves.

He turned professional in 2015 but was unable to bring into the Blues first team, and 2017, he signed his first loan deal with Barnsley, but the contract was pretty soon terminated over lack of game time.

The Nigerian-descent is currently on loan from Chelsea with Cercle Brugge in Belgium after loan stints with Milton Keynes Dons, Scunthorpe United and Roda JC in Netherlands second division.

Ugbo however feels the time is right for his return to Stamford Bridge having spent three years on loan spells.

According to him, a return to his parent club would be the ‘ultimate’ dream, also revealing that former Norwegian- Chelsea footballer, now academy scout Tore André Flo is in close contact with him.

“Chelsea will always be the biggest club in the capital. Chelsea would be the ultimate dream. I want to play in the Premier League. It’s up to me to prove that I’m ready for a return. I’ve got hope. Tore André Flo is a scout. He follows me and sends me feedback”. he said to WonderSoccer earlier today.

Occasion seems right for the 22-year-old to return to his boyhood club, with Chelsea boss Frank Lampard currently building a relatively young squad and needing as much youngsters talent as possible.

The forward has made eighty-eight (88) career appearances and scored 22 goals all through his loan spells, with four netted at his current club, Cercle Brugge in eight appearances this term.
