When Guus Hiddink was asked if Chelsea would make some signings in this January transfer window to revamp their attack, he answered:

“We also have Bertrand Traore who is a youngster. And then we are thinking.

“I’m thinking. It’s not good to talk when you are thinking. Why shall we go public? If, suppose something is going on, it can be harmful when you go public. That’s my intention, to get you confused,”

“I have good contact with the board and they are open to discussing all the options. That’s not to say it has to be done but it is open. And if the window is open the mouth is shut”.

Hiddink was also asked about Patrick Bamford, that had a bad loan spalle to Crystal Palace, about a chance for him in the first team squad:

“Things haven’t worked out for whatever reason. I would have been more content if I had been given a chance and not taken it, but I haven’t started a game in the Premier League. For a young player like me, that’s not what you need so I had to take my development into consideration and make it the priority. He will continue to play with the U21 because he has to prove something.”
