Chelsea defender to decide future in the summer

Chelsea full-back Ryan Bertrand has refused to rule out a move from Stamford Bridge in the summer, reports The London Evening Standard

The Blues ace is currently on loan at Aston Villa and has impressed so far for Paul Lambert's team. 

And with rumours linking him with a permanent move to the club, Bertrand has insisted that he will wait until the summer before deciding on his long term future. 

"I'm just here to concentrate on each game as it comes and to get back playing regularly," Bertrand told The Birmingham Mail.

"I'll leave all that stuff until the end of the season.

"You can't rule anything out. It's important, first and foremost, that my performances are good enough. I need to concentrate on each game.

"I've settled in quite easily. It's fortunate, to be fair, because I know half the team through England at younger ages. It has been good. It's great to be involved in a derby for my first home game."

If Bertrand does return to Chelsea then he will have to compete with the likes of Ashley Cole and César Azpilicueta for a place in the team. 

The Blues have also been heavily linked with Southampton left-back Luke Shaw in recent time, which could Bertrand's task at the Blues even more difficult.

The on-loan Chelsea star's immediate attention will turn to Aston Villa's clash with West Brom in the West Midlands derby tonight. 

Meanwhile Chelsea are also in action this evening as they take on West Ham at Stamford Bridge.
