Chelsea youngster Jay Dasilva is currently on loan with Charlton, and the 20-year-old is nearly at the end of his second loan spell with Charlton after joining the League One club in December 2016.

Dasilva recently won Charlton Supporters’ Player of the Year award for his impressive performances at left-back this season.

And Charlton boss Lee Bowyer believes the Chelsea youngster has the ability to become a first-team regular at Chelsea, and even thinks he is better than Chelsea legend Ashley Cole when Cole was at this stage of his career.

“I can’t see why he couldn’t play in the Premier League,” said Bowyer.

“He’s very similar I think to Ashley Cole, he’s probably better than Ashley Cole was at his age.

“I played against Ashley at a young age, everyone knows how good he was, probably our best left back for a very, very long time.

“An offensive left back and Jay is the same.”
