Although his loan spell was not officially cut short, Sterling returned to his parent club Chelsea to begin his rehabilitation process.

Now that the Championship season is over, Sterling’s time at Bloomfield Road is now over.

“A big thank you to all the players, gaffer, coaches and staff for making my time at the club so positive,” he posted on Twitter.

Sterling impressed in his 25 appearances for the Seasiders

“The fans are HUGE, win or lose! Good luck for the future.”

It was recently reported that Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel informed Sterling to prepare for the start of pre-season.

It is claimed that Tuchel has been impressed with Sterling’s form this term and Neil Critchley has provided the German with plenty of positive feedback on the defender’s performance.

While the majority of Sterling’s outings have been at right-back, he also excelled at left-back when drafted as cover due to injuries to James Husband, Luke Garbutt and Reece James. He also appeared on the right of a back three.

Sterling signed a two-year contract extension with Chelsea before joining Pool on loan.
