Fullback Todd Kane has spoken out recently on spending the last four years on loan but has re-iterated his desire to make it at Chelsea. He is hoping for a chance next season.

Kane has spent the last FOUR YEARS out on loan away from Chelsea to aid his development. As with plenty of other players who are now of a certain age, Kane was challenged on his future and any hopes he has to make it here.

He responded by saying:

"I've been out on loan for four years and I think I've learnt a lot more from playing men's football than in the under-21s league.

I'm near enough on the 100 mark of senior appearances. It's been very good for me and you have to be realistic and know that only one or two will get opportunities at a big club like Chelsea.

It's the same at somewhere like Manchester United. Let's be honest, Marcus Rashford got his chance at United because, to a degree, it's fallen into place. He's a great player but you have to get a bit of luck.

I've learnt so much from being at Chelsea. From working and training with top quality players, I still speak to people from the club all the time, get advice from players, the Chelsea set-up is fantastic and I've definitely got no regrets.

I'm really enjoying it in Holland. I had a look round the place and loved it straight away. It's just what I needed. I'm living in the middle of nowhere, just focused on football -- training and working hard. It's a great test.

But I'm hoping I will get a chance under the new manager at Chelsea this summer.

Chelsea are good for the players out on loan. The technical director, Michael Emenalo, is a clever man, stays in regular contact and gives you a lot of encouragement.

Cesar Azpilicueta is a terrific full-back, you can learn so much from him, as I've also done from Paulo Ferreira in the past. But maybe there's a second position up for grabs and I'm hoping to prove I'm ready."

He has a major point here in my opinion. We should have within our squad TWO players for each position. In our current squad as fullbacks we have Baba Rahman, Branislav Ivanovic and Cesar Azpilicueta with no fourth player. Why can't someone like Todd Kane or Nathan Ake make the step up in the summer?

There is always plenty of debate when it comes to Chelsea and the Academy. We always here questions asked as to where is the next John Terry to come through and establish themselves? The fact that he has stated that he has learned far more in four years on loan than he would playing the under 21's league says it all.

However, there comes a time when enough is enough and these players are given a chance. Tell me for example what Baba Rahman has done this season? Why not bring in these players for consideration?

Todd Kane has made his intentions clear this summer, he wants a chance now at Chelsea. The question remains whether or not he gets what he clearly deserves.
