Chelsea midfielder Josh McEachran has revealed he's sticking close to the experienced players at Stamford Bridge as he looks to improve his game further.

The England U21 international is being heavily linked with a loan move away from west London, with Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers known to be keen on bringing the 18-year-old to Wales.

"I need to have a conversation at length (with Chelsea). Josh is not playing at the moment, he is on the bench," said Rodgers last month.

However, the player himself is happy to learn from some of the veterans at the club, with senior internationals John Terry and Frank Lampard just two of the players singled out for special mention.

When asked who he got on with best at Chelsea, McEachran responded: "All the English players. JT, Lamps, Ashley Cole. They have helped me a lot! I hang around with Ryan Bertrand and Daniel Sturridge the most.

"At Chelsea I look up to John Terry and Frank Lampard and across the world I look up to Andreas Iniesta."

Answering questions as part of a Twitter feature for, the teenager also admitted that the best match he's ever played in was the FA Youth Cup final, when the Blues overcame Aston Villa 3-2 on aggregate.

"Chelsea v Aston Villa in The FA Youth Cup Final," he replied on his favourite game.

"We won 3-2 on aggregate! Conor Clifford scored the winner."
