Gael Kakuta says he doesn’t want to return to Chelsea when his season-long loan spell at Vitesse Arnhem finishes.

The 21-year-old has impressed for the Eredivisie side this term, scoring once and creating six goals in 17 appearances for Vitesse.

The France Under-21 international has spent the last three seasons on loan at Fulham, Bolton Wanderers, Dijon and Vitesse in a bid to gain vital experience.

And Kakuta is hoping to remain at Vitesse after admitting his first-team chances will be limited at the Blues if the forward returns to Stamford Bridge.

“I don’t dream about Chelsea any more – 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.”
