Chairman Ken Bates has admitted Chelsea may scrap its youth policy if football's current transfer market system is abolished.

The Blues have been criticised for looking abroad for foreign stars over homegrown talent, but Bates has hinted that the flood of foreigners into the club will not lessen.

Bates is wary of the threat hanging over the club spending a lot of money developing young players, only for them then to walk out on the side at any time for nothing.

"There is little point spending huge sums of money in developing youth players if they can walk out at any time, without any form of compensation," said Bates.

The Stamford Bridge supremo also warned that this year would be a difficult one for the club financially, after it was revealed that the West London side had made a loss of £3.5 million last season.

"The current year will be a difficult one as we try to strike a balance between our current playing demands and investing in our commercial future," Bates said.
