The full-back will return to Stamford Bridge after scoring three times in 10 Premier League appearances for the Cherries so far this season

Nathan Ake has been recalled by Premier League leaders Chelsea from his loan spell at Bournemouth.

The 21-year-old defender joined Eddie Howe's side on a season-long loan deal last June and has impressed on the south coast, prompting Antonio Conte to bring him back to the Blues.
Conte had described Ake as a "very interesting opportunity" in the January transfer window as he looks to keep Chelsea at the top of the table and the Italian has now made the decision to bring him into his squad.

Chelsea and Bournemouth both confirmed the decisions in statements on Sunday, with the Cherries saying: "Ake has started the last eight games he has been eligible for but Chelsea have activated an option to recall him during the opening weeks of January, and the 21-year-old will return to Stamford Bridge immediately.
