Trevoh Chalobah believes the success his former Chelsea academy team-mates are enjoying is proof of the benefits of going out on loan.
The England U21 international has spent the last two seasons on loan at Ipswich Town and Huddersfield Town.
The 20-year-old says watching the likes of Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori earn regular minutes gives him confidence.
"It just shows that the loan system does work"
"I think those boys have shown that going on loan is beneficial for the players," he told football.london.
"To go out and get game time and experience, that’s the main thing.
"Those boys have come in and done well and proved people wrong that they are good enough.
"It just shows that the loan system does work and if you do well then you can have the achievements they have had.
“I speak to them almost every day, so it’s really good.
"I have been watching most of their games, seen them scoring and I’m happy for them."
"It is my dream to play in the Premier League"
Chalobah signed a new Chelsea contract before departing for Huddersfield, tying him to the Blues until 2022.
He has been with Chelsea seen under-9 level, following in the footsteps of his older brother Nathaniel, and has won the UEFA Youth League as well as back-to-back FA Youth Cups.
While he is focused on Huddersfield, the centre-back turned midfielder dreams of playing under Frank Lampard in the Premier League.
"It was good to get a new deal and get rewarded for what I had done well last year," he continued.
"This year is the same, really, just focusing on Huddersfield, doing my best for the team and then just seeing what happens next season.
“I think after this two years experience that I have had in the Championship, everyone knows that the Championship is a really good league and it is just one step away [from the Premier League].
“It is my dream to play in the Premier League.
"So I want to finish off the season as strong as possible and see what happens.
"You could see straight away what Lampard wanted"
Chalobah had the experience of working under Lampard when he went on tour with the first team in Ireland last summer.
The 20-year-old played the second half of the opening game against Bohemians alongside Kurt Zouma at centre-back and got a feel for the type of football he could be playing under the Blues' legend's headship.
"You could see straight away what Lampard wanted,” Chalobah added.
“Working hard, winning the ball back and that’s what you can see from Chelsea now.
“Keeping the ball, playing good, attacking football and you could see right away when he came in that it was what he ingrained in the lads.
“Obviously in pre-season it was really good and playing that game in Ireland was fantastic to play under him."
