Ruben Loftus-Cheek admits he pushed to leave Chelsea on loan for Fulham after having “an honest conversation” with club manager Frank Lampard.

The England international move to the west London club’s neighbours for game time having dropped down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge with the signing of Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer.

He said: “We [me and Frank Lampard] had an honest conversation. I was the one who initiated it. I felt like it was paramount that I played a lot of football this season.

“With the strength in depth at Chelsea and how I was feeling, I was not sure being out for so long that when I had the opportunity that I could play fantastically and hold down a place in the starting XI.

“I was not 100 per cent I could do that, because I need to build my confidence back up.”
