Wales manager Ryan Giggs believes Ethan Ampadu has a massive decision ahead of with regards to his future with Chelsea which could affect his minutes with the international team.
The 19-year-old has however struggled for minutes on the pitch with Chelsea as well as RB Leipzig where he was shipped out on loan last season and it's about to get competitive in the Premier League following the signing of Thiago Silva.
"Thiago is a quality centre-half and you can only learn from someone like that," Giggs said.
"I want all the players to be playing regularly, but that sometimes isn't the case.
"It's that balance over whether they're at a top club and surrounded by top players and improving every day, but ultimately you need minutes on the pitch.
"That's a decision for Ethan. I've talked to him a lot about that.
"I think last year was maybe a little bit different as he had injuries. You could see from the game he played against Tottenham in the Champions League he was outstanding.
"Nothing fazes him, he's a quality player, and he just needs to keep fit now."
