Chelsea Defender Nathan Ake Wanted By Bordeaux

Chelsea's teenage defender Nathan Ake could land a sensational loan switch to French giants Bordeaux.

Ake, 17, is rated as the one of the best young players in Europe but is yet to play for the Blues.

Chelsea paid £230,000 to snap him up as a 15-year-old from Feyenoord and he has impressed in the Blues youth teams.

Now Bordeaux want him to switch to France and help them fight their into a Champions League spot.

Rafa Benitez is willing to let him head out on loan to gain first team experience.

He does not believe the youngster is ready yet for the rough and tumble of Premier League football.

And it is hoped a six month stint in France will toughen up Ake so he can add some power to his poise at the heart of the defence.
