Crystal Palace midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek found himself twice blocked from leaving Chelsea by two different managers.

Both current Blues boss Antonio Conte and predecessor Jose Mourinho stopped Loftus-Cheek leaving, says The Sun.

And the two Chelsea bosses then failed to give the 21-year-old enough first-team chances.

The gifted midfielder had a series of loan offers from Premier League clubs blocked by both then Chelsea boss Mourinho and his successor Conte.

Loftus-Cheek, man of the match against the Germans on Friday night, was finally allowed to leave on a year-long loan to Palace this summer.
