Chelsea’s manager Antonio Conte admit he hopes Nathan Ake can be a valuable member of his team during the second half of the Premier League season.

The Dutch man has a part in the Blue’s bid for the Premier title, per the Italian manager.

Ake was recalled back to the club from a loan spell at Bournemouth this month after series of impressing performances as part of Eddie Howe’s squad.

And the Italian coach insists the Netherlands international has not been brought back to the team in a bid to cash in on his strong performances during the January transfer window.

Instead, Conte believes the versatile Ake will be a valuable addition as he looks to maintain his team position at top of the table.

“Nathan Ake came back with us because I evaluated his situation and our situation and he is a good reinforcement,” Conte told a news conference.

“Ake is a player who can play in different positions. I think he has improved a lot and now he is ready to play with Chelsea and help us.

“This is the second week he has been with us and he is starting to go into our idea of football. I’m pleased to have him.”

Chelsea face strugglers Hull City in the Premier League on Sunday.
