Sun 28 February 2021 | 10:05

After falling out of favor at Chelsea, Loftus-Cheek is currently playing a key role in Fulham's Premier League survival. Fulham’s boss, Scott Parker, has been delighted with the 25-year-old's contribution

Ahead of their Sunday clash with

Crystal Palace

,

Parker

told his pre-match conference:

"From when he first came into the building you could sense someone a little bit weary and someone who was a little bit down.

"He had been out for an extremely long time and had not played a lot of football. I've just seen someone grow, grow and grow into the player who we've all seen.

"There's still loads to come but this is a player at this moment in time who, given moments in games, can take the game by the scruff of the neck and be that powerful, technically-gifted midfield player.

"I think he's grown in confidence. I think the environment and the work he's done in this short space of time has been a credit to him. I've been very, very pleased with him and he's going in the right direction."

Fulham

reportedly have a £9 million buy option in

Loftus-Cheek’s

loan deal.
