Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek in no rush to make decision on future
From ESPN - April 16, 2018

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has said he is yet to make a decision about his Chelsea future.

Midfielder Loftus-Cheek, on loan at Crystal Palace, produced an impressive performance in Saturday's 3-2 win over Brighton at Selhurst Park.

The win eased Palace's relegation fears, with Loftus-Cheek assured in only his fourth appearance of 2018.

Palace manager Roy Hodgson backed the 22-year-old to earn a place in Gareth Southgate's England squad for the World Cup, and there are suggestions that he would like to sign Loftus-Cheek from Chelsea on a permanent basis.

"I really have not thought about what's going to happen next season," Loftus-Cheek said. "I have still got a few games now. I am focused with Palace.

"Whatever happens next season, I am not really looking at that right now. I will deal with that when it comes."

Loftus-Cheek said he was relishing a more significant role with Palace after spending three years on the fringes of the Chelsea first team.

"The experience of being a Premier League player playing every week is just massive," he added.
