Nathan Ake has been recalled by Chelsea after spending the first half of the season at Bournemouth.

Ake is expected to provide competition for Marcos Alonso at left wing-back, but the versatile Dutchman can also play in midfield and central defence.

"Nathan Ake has been recalled from his loan spell at Bournemouth," said a statement on Chelsea's website.

"The 21-year-old Dutchman made 12 appearances for the Cherries and scored three goals, including a last-minute winner against Liverpool in December."
