Chelsea Youngster Bemoans Competition For Places

Gael Kakuta

Chelsea midfielder Gael Kakuta has expressed his concern at the number of midfielders the Blues have and that he hopes to leave permanently in the summer.

Kakuta is currently on loan at Dutch outfit Vitesse Arnhem and has been a major part of their first team throughout the season.

The French under-21 international is not happy that the West London club continue to buy expensive midfield players when they have talented youngsters coming through.

The Blues signed Eden Hazard, Marko Marin, Victor Moses and Oscar this summer that has left Kakuta with no alternative but to find a new club.

Chelsea were given a hefty fine and a transfer embargo after illegally tempting Kakuta to Stamford Bridge in  2007 but six league appearances and four loan spells later it appears his time at the Blues is up.

Kakuta has admitted that he has given up on making it at Chelsea.

“I don’t dream about Chelsea anymore – I used to, now I know better,” Kakuta told The Sun.

“I hope I can join a club like Vitesse next season, where I can play every week.

“Chelsea have far too many players. At my age I need to play regularly but if I go back I’ll just get 10 minutes a month and I don’t want that.”
