Recovering Ghana international, Baba Abdul Rahman returned to group training with the Chelsea squad Tuesday.
Rahman suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury while playing for Ghana at the African Cup of Nations in January this year. This has kept out of the game since then with full attention switched towards recuperation.
Schalke 04 were billed to snap up the 23-year-old on loan for a second time after spending last season with them in the Bundesliga.
Chelsea however blocked the deal and decided Rahman stays at the club and make full recovery.
Reports indicate he could be sent out on loan in January since he did not make the official squad list for the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League.
