Nathaniel Chalobah took to Instagram to welcome back Nathan Ake after the Dutchman was recalled from his Bournemouth loan.
Chalobah has emerged as an important member of the first-team squad under the stewardship of Antonio Conte, with the Italian often bringing him on as a substitute to close out games.
Conte has shown further willingness to trust the youngsters by recalling Ake back from his loan spell with Bournemouth. Ake had become a key player in the Cherries side and Eddie Howe will undoubtedly be disappointed to see him go.
We could well see the pair linking up on the field before long.
Nathaniel Chalobah seems happy to have Nathan Ake back at Chelsea!
