GEORGE Saville hopes his loan spell at Brentford can boost his chances of breaking into the Chelsea first-team squad.
The highly-rated midfielder came through the ranks at Stamford Bridge but is yet to make his debut.
Saville spent a spell with Championship outfit Millwall last season and will remain at Griffin Park until at least January.
And the talented 20-year-old hopes his time in TW8 will help his Chelsea cause.
He said: “I've been at Chelsea since I was 12 or 13 and came through the academy. I went on tour with them last pre-season and played out in America.
“I've also been on the bench a few times, which was a great experience.
“I trained with the first team for the majority of the season before I went on loan to Millwall. It's great to be able to learn off them day in, day out.
“You've always got to believe there's a chance of breaking through at Chelsea. You've got to have some hope and something to strive for.
“But for now my priority is doing well for Brentford.
“The main thing is to play regular, competitive games. I also wanted to come somewhere where they like to play football, rather than lumping it long.
“There were a few clubs interested but Brentford were the best option for me.”
