Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti insists striker Daniel Sturridge will not be leaving Stamford Bridge in a permanent move.
The 21-year-old forward joined Bolton Wanderers on loan at the end of last month and netted three goals in his first three games for the Reebok Stadium outfit.
Ancelotti insists he only sanctioned the move to allow Sturridge to gain more first-team experience and has tipped for former Manchester City man for big things when he returns to London at the end of the season, despite the player having to battle the likes of Fernando Torres, Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka for a starting role.
The Italian said: “Every one of us is happy because Sturridge is our player and he is doing very well.
“I hope he can score more and then in the summer he will come back.
“It was the right time to go and play on loan because he didn't have a lot of space here and he needed to play.
“He found a very good club who are playing good football. Sturridge can show his quality. I hope that he can continue.”
