Conor Gallagher insists he is looking forward to working under new Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino.
The midfielder has been linked with a move away, with Brighton among the clubs reportedly interested.
But the 23-year-old has said: “I love Chelsea.
“It has been a tough season for me and the whole team so I think we will just be working hard to get us back to where we belong.
“I am always grateful to be here and for Gareth to have that trust in me despite it being a tough season for both me and Chelsea. I am really happy he has shown that trust in me still and I think he knows I will work as hard as I can no matter what to give my best.
“I just need to keep working hard and get a bit of my confidence back in a way, I didn’t lose it but I need to get a rhythm of playing more games, score more goals and I am trying to reach that stage.
“[Pochettino] is a top manager, everyone at Chelsea is happy he’s here and we’re looking forward to working with him.”
