Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is recovering after being involved in a “minor” car accident outside the club’s Cobham training ground.

The France midfielder, 23, is understood to have just left the complex when the accident occurred around 3.30pm at Blundell Lane.

Bakayoko is understood to have received only “minor” injuries according to club sources.

Suggestions that he was involved in a head-on collision have been dismissed by the Blues.
