Noni Madueke claims that a loan spell next campaign would be “impossible,” making it clear that he’s relishing the chance to work under Mauricio Pochettino.
Madueke joined Chelsea from Dutch side PSV Eindhoven in the January transfer window for £30.5million.
After a slow start to life at Stamford Bridge, the England under-21 international is now set to embark on a European Championship campaign with the Three Lions.

Whenever he gets back, Madueke will be raring to go in order to impress Pochettino, and he’s not thinking about a temporary stint away from West London.
“A loan spell would be impossible for both parties,” the Barnet-born winger explained, speaking to the Evening Standard.
“I’ve been brought in and there’s a plan for me at the club. I finished the season well, so next season is just about kicking on in the team and showing everyone the real me.”
Madueke added: “The expectation for me from the club and myself is for me to play – and play well – next year, and to keep developing as a player and a person.”
Having struggled to find his feet under previous head coach Graham Potter, the 21-year-old winger managed to get himself in favour with Frank Lampard.
Making 12 appearances before the end of Chelsea’s campaign, in which they finished 12th in the Premier League, and Madueke scored his first goal for the club during a 3-1 defeat to Arsenal in May.
