The 21-year-old has been limited to just three starts under his new manager but Conte wants to offer his England Under-21 worldwide hope that he can continue to develop at Stamford Bridge without going away in search of more game time.
"No. Ruben stays here [rather than go out on loan]", Conte said at a press conference at Cobham.
Young duo Nathaniel Chalobah and Ruben Loftus-Cheek also make the cut. Chelsea is a top team and to play here is not easy. "He's improving a lot and today he has a good chance to play from the start". They had very good young players but to arrive in the first team and play you need to make steps and come back.
"For the rest of the season Ruben and Chalobah will for sure continue to stay with us".
"It's very hard to go straight from the Academy to the first team. It's important to evaluate the situation and make the best decision together".
