Wayne Bridge has set his stall out to be a regular starter in the new season.
Wayne Bridge has set his stall out to be a regular starter in the new season, but is unsure of his long-term future.
The Chelsea defender spent the second half of last term on loan at Fulham after failing to hold down a regular spot at Stamford Bridge following his recovery from a serious ankle injury.
The 25-year-old has returned to training with The Blues, but his future is up in the air as Chelsea have been linked with a move for Arsenal's England international left back Ashley Cole.
Bridge has been linked with a number of clubs this summer, including Tottenham and Newcastle, and he has set his stall out to be a regular starter in the new season.
"I just want to play some games," Bridge told Sky Sports News. "I don't know what is going to happen, but I want to play a lot of games.
"We will just see what happens."
Bridge would not be drawn to comment on reports linking his England team-mate Cole with a switch to West London.
"I will take it one day at a time and one game at a time, but I will cross that bridge when I come it," he said about Cole.
Bridge believes Chelsea are looking good in training, as he added: "It is good. Everyone has come back and looked sharp. Training is going really well and it looks like everyone is getting fit quickly.
"All the new signings have settled in quickly, it is a friendly club and they have been made to feel welcome, and they look good."
