However, the chances of Ake ending the season with the Cherries seem to be slim with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte set to recall the Dutchman from his loan. The Premier League leaders are short on defensive cover and Conte wants Ake back to provide competition for full back’s Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses, while he could also fill in at centre back.
Ake was missing from Bournemouth’s squad for Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at Millwall in the FA Cup.
