He said: “I’m definitely proud. Winning major cup finals, being on the pitch to help my team. Being on the pitch to win some of those trophies – Champions League, Super Cup, all that stuff. I thought I had a lot of great moments at Chelsea and I was really happy with my time there.

“I definitely enjoyed it and learnt a lot as a player, and I grew a lot and at the end of the day I’m really proud but at the same time I’m definitely ready for this next challenge.

“Of course I’d like to think so [could’ve had more opportunities], there are definitely times where I wish I could’ve got more of an opportunity and been that guy, but for whatever reason that’s not the case. But like I said I’m just so excited for this new challenge.”
