England manager Gareth Southgate has opened up on why Chelsea’s transfer ban is good news for him and the national side in the long run with the likes of Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham now getting their chance.

“I think I’ve spoken for a couple of years now about the quality of young players coming through our academies," Southgate responded when asked about Chelsea's transfer ban.

But the Blues were handed a two-window transfer ban by FIFA in February of this year, with them unable to register any new players who are above the age of 16, after breaking regulations over the signing of youth players.

“But I think what’s clear is that they’re enjoying that opportunity and enjoying their football.

And Southgate admits that it is good to see the young players getting opportunities at Chelsea, with Abraham, Mount and Tomori joining Ross Barkley in the senior England squad, while James and Hudson-Odoi were named in the U21 squad.
