Fulham are interested in taking Chelsea youngster Nathan Ake on loan.

The Dutch youngster has turned down a move to Vitesse Arnhem in favour of staying in England.

Jose Mourinho is keen on giving some of his young guns the chance to play first-team football away from Stamford Bridge to aid their development.

Ake, 18, joined from Feyenoord in the summer of 2011 after competing in the Under-17 WorldCup.

He made his debut in the at Norwich on Boxing Day 2012 before earning his first start in an FA Cup fifth-round tie away at Middlesbrough two months later.
