Chelsea midfielder Saul Niguez reportedly has no plans to return to Atletico Madrid over the winter.
The Spaniard notably struggled in his Premier League debut against Aston Villa and has failed to make an impact under Thomas Tuchel since his loan move from the La Liga champions.
Saul has been tipped to cut his loan spell at Stamford Bridge short amid his lack of playing time, although he fell out of favour under Diego Simeone as well last term.
However, The Telegraph claims that Saul is not considering a January exit from the Blues, with the club’s fellow Spaniards helping their compatriot to adjust to life in England.
The report adds that Saul – who was not called up to the Spain squad – will ‘work intensively’ with Tuchel during the international break, and Chelsea are confident that the 26-year-old will eventually come good this term.
Saul is without a goal or assist in five games for Chelsea in all competitions and has played just 47 minutes of Premier League football so far.
