Chelsea loanee Gael Kakuta is determined to make an impact on loan at Bolton Wanderers, and is eager for manager Owen Coyle to give him his chance to shine.

The French U21 international, who has been linked with a controversial switch of allegiance to DR Congo, joined the Trotters this summer after spending the later stages of last season on loan at Fulham.

But after scoring on debut in the Carling Cup against Aston Villa, the 20-year-old has lost his place in the line-up to Martin Petrov, and is hoping to get another chance at the Reebok Stadium.

"I came here to play. No player likes to be sitting on the bench. I understand that you have to earn your place and I'm confident in my own ability and know that I will make the most of this opportunity," Kakuta told the Bolton Evening News.

"It was enjoyable to score on my debut but that's in the past now and I obviously want to play as much as I can.

"I feel comfortable in the team and that is always a bonus because it helps you play your best football."

The youngster is hoping to follow in the footsteps of Daniel Sturridge this term, after the striker enjoyed a season to remember on loan in Lancashire last term.


Sturridge is now an integral part of Andre Villas-Boas' side's make-up at Stamford Bridge, and Kakuta is aiming to follow in his footsteps.

"I'm a Chelsea player at the end of the day," he concluded.

"I'm obviously extremely grateful for the opportunity to play here at Bolton Wanderers, but my main aim is to get into that Chelsea first team."
