Reece James’ five-word message hints at Chelsea’s Sergino Dest transfer decision

Now, added to the recent Chalobah injury return boost, James himself has excited the Blues faithful with his recent message on Instagram that shows his commitment and desire to get back out on the pitch as quickly as possible.

Reece James' five word message hints at Chelsea's Sergino Dest transfer decision

On his Instagram account @reecejames, he posted his encouraging five word verdict: ‘Laced up! 1 step closer,” [followed by three different emojis.]’

Understands that no return is imminent for the 22-year-old but the fact he’s close to first team training again means that Marina Granovskaia may not have to invest in signing two wing-backs to cover this current injury crisis

Sergino Dest was the main candidate to come in and act as a temporary replacement for James but the lack of movement on that transfer specifically shows the board’s willingness to just stick it out with Cesar Azpilicueta and colleagues until the Cobham academy graduate returns, meaning no unnecessary money has to be spent.
