Michael Hector and Lucas Piazon have returned to Chelsea from Reading to train with the Blues for the remainder of the season.

With Reading in mid-table in the Championship, out of play-off contention and clear of relegation danger, the pair have returned to their parent club to be assessed.

English defender Hector and Brazilian midfielder Piazon will not be eligible for selection in the Blues' remaining four Premier League fixtures under caretaker boss Guus Hiddink.

John Terry could have a say in the Premier League title race after all and may return for Chelsea against Tottenham on May 2.

Chelsea interim boss Guus Hiddink on Friday revealed Terry, who has an Achilles injury, would travel to Bournemouth for Saturday's match, with a view to a return to the squad against title-chasing Spurs.

John is very committed. He was very annoyed about his injury, but now recovering. He desperately wants to be with the team.

I hope he will step up next week and we will see how it will go in the last couple of games.

We play on Monday week. He has to step up, starting next week. He should be training with the group at least by Thursday (to be considered to face Spurs).

– John Terry
