The FFF said in a statement tht national coach Didier Deschamps had decided to send Kante back to Chelsea after consulting with medical staff.

Kante has started four of Chelsea’s last five league games and manager Thomas Tuchel will hope to have him fit in time for their Premier League match against West Bromwich Albion on April 3.
