Ruben Loftus-Cheek should demand to leave Chelsea in the January transfer window, according to Sam Allardyce.

The 22-year-old has played only 33 minutes in the Premier League this season and admitted in the summer that he was reluctant to remain at Stamford Bridge if he did not get regular playing time.

Loftus-Cheek excelled during his season-long loan at Crystal Palace last term and Allardyce believes the midfielder needs to build his own career away from Chelsea.

Im disappointed for Loftus-Cheek, Allardyce told talkSPORT.

Chelsea have told him hes going to be a part of the team this season and, if that is the case, they havent lived up to that yet.

What he did for Crystal Palace last season and for England at the World Cup, I thought this would be a big season for him at Chelsea, but its simply not happening.

If I were Loftus-Cheek I would be battering the door down in January and saying, thats it, I need to get away.

And not on loan, get away from Chelsea properly and build his own career.

Hes had the taste of playing first team football at Palace and obviously he loves Chelsea, but its not happening for him there.

Hes got to play. Hes too talented not to play, weve all seen that.
