Chelsea winger Gael Kakuta has admitted that he does not want to be sent out on loan again next season, reports skysports.com.

The 20-year-old forward returned to his homeland when he signed for Ligue 1 side Dijon in January, and having impressed with a series of scintillating performances, is eyeing a return to the Premier League.

Kakuta was loaned to Bolton Wanderers during the first half of the 2011-12 campaign, but failed to ever really establish himself at the Reebok Stadium, meaning playing time was hard to come by.

But, the France U21 international has netted four goals at Dijon, and with confidence high, is hoping he can make a first-team impact at Chelsea next year.

"Next season, I don't want to be loaned out again," confirmed Kakuta. "I'm having a very good experience at Dijon.

"By coming on loan here, it showed they still trust me."

Chelsea's wealth of attacking options means that Kakuta will likely find it difficult to break into the senior side, but with an anticipated summer clear out of all the dead wood, he will at least move further up the pecking order.
