A report claims that Chelsea fully accept N'Golo Kante's decision to sit out training and are not putting a timeframe on his return.

Chelsea have reportedly put no pressure on N'Golo Kante to return to training after the midfielder was granted compassionate leave over coronavirus fears.

Kante took part in training on Tuesday as a number of Premier League clubs resumed non-contact sessions, more than two months after the campaign was brought to a halt by COVID-19.

However, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard allowed the France international to skip Wednesday and Thursday's sessions because of concerns over spreading the disease to his family.

According to the Evening Standard, the Blues fully accept Kante's decision and have not put a timeframe on his return to group training.

Premier League clubs are working towards a return to competitive action on June 12, despite concerns from a number of figures in the game.
