Chelsea starlet Nathaniel Chalobah is hoping to join another Premier League club on loan next season, according to Sky Sports.
The 18-year-old impressed during a loan spell at Watford last season and became one of the league's best midfielders, featuring 42 times for the Championship outfit.
The player has already been told he will be loaned out again by boss Jose Mourinho this term but he has stated that he would much prefer to stay in the Premier League rather than repeat last season in moving to a lower-level club.
England U21 international Chalobah is reportedly highly rated by new manager Mourinho and is currently part of Chelsea's pre-season plans. Another loan spell will give him the first-team experience which he needs to develop himself as a player and possibly put him in a better position to compete for a first-team place at the Blues.
Chalobah said: "He (Mourinho) has already told me he likes me and he likes what I'm doing, but he reckons another year out is probably the best decision. A loan is probably the best move at the moment.
"Chelsea's where I want to be. It's probably best to play around the same level, in the same league.
"The Premier League is probably where I'll be looking to go this year.
"It's up to me and up to the club to find a place for me where I can get a chance to play, because I don't want to go to another Premier League team and sit on the bench."
Chalobah prefers to ply his trade in midfield, but has been deployed in the centre of defence by Mourinho in the two pre-season matches so far.
I believe the England under-21 player is better when in the heart of midfield because of his passing abilities and eye for goal. He is very versatile and can play many positions but he could grow to be the future of the England national team as a midfielder.
