With Stuart Pearce having finalized his U21 squad for the forthcoming European Championships, we`re pleased to see that there is a quartet of Chelsea youngsters in the squad.
Ryan Bertrand, Michael Mancienne, Jack Cork and Daniel Sturridge have all been selected.
Interestingly though, you could speculate as to how many of those four have a future at Chelsea.
Ryan Bertrand may have made his Chelsea debut this season but with Patrick van Anaholt signing a new contract on Monday, could Ryan be worried that his own future at Chelsea could be in doubt?
Michael Mancienne has been out on loan at Wolves all season and we`d be very surprised if he were to feature in our plans for next season.
Jack Cork is another who has been out on a season long loan and a player who has openly admitted he sees his future away from Stamford Bridge.
Which just leaves Daniel Sturridge, a player that showed just how well a loan move worked out for him by scoring almost for fun at Bolton; but one who`ll be anxiously awaiting developments at Stamford Bridge to see if an opening appears for him!
It just goes to show just how big a hurdle actually establishing yourself in the starting eleven of one of the top teams in Europe is.
Nevertheless, we wish all four every success this summer as England attempts to land some silverware!
