Nathan Ake has taken to social media to reveal his delight at being back at Chelsea after he trained with his team-mates at Cobham this week.

The Dutch defender was recalled by the Blues this month after Antonio Conte opted to bring him back from his loan spell at Bournemouth early.

Ake earned plenty of praise for his performances for Bournemouth during his temporary spell at the club and his displays clearly did not go unnoticed by Conte this season.

The defender will now be hoping to stake his claim for a regular starting spot in the Chelsea first team this season as he bids to help the Blues win the Premier League.

Ake posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Good to be back 💪🏽”
