Ryan Bertrand open to permanent Southampton move after his loan spell

Southampton defender Ryan Bertrand, currently on loan from Chelsea, has admitted he would be keen on a permanent deal, reports BBC Sport.

“I’ve got to wait and see, but, for me, there’s no reason why not. There is a good base to the club, we’re pulling in the right direction. We have fantastic fans, fantastic players, a fantastic manager and coaching staff. It has been a good experience for me so far. As a team we’re only going to get better, individually I am only going to improve,” said Bertrand.

The left-back spent time on loan to Aston Villa last season, but his form dipped during the last couple of months. He’s been at his best for the high-flying Saints this season, however, and with Filipe Luis and Cesar Azpilicueta for competition at Chelsea, Bertrand may be forced to leave the Blues for good.
