Ghana winger Christian Atsu went out shopping with his wife and son as he takes time off on his campaign to win the confidence of Chelsea manager Guud Hiddink.

The 23-year-old is pictured around a London mall in the company of his wife, Claire and his two-year-old son Joshua.

Atsu has begun training at Chelsea after being recalled from his disastrous loan spell at Bournemouth.

The Ghana international failed to make a single Premier League appearance for the Cherries since arriving from the beginning of the season.

Atsu has had to endure a torrid spell with injuries but is now fit and has resumed training at Chelsea under interim manager Guus Hiddink.

The Ghana international is likely to be given a chance to impress in Chelsea’s FA Cup clash against Scunthorpe United on Sunday.

Manager Guus Hiddink will be using the match to give some opportunities to the fringe players in his squad including Baba Abdul Rahman.

If Atsu fails to impress when given the chance against Scunthorpe, he is likely to be loaned out once more again or even transferred from Chelsea permanently.

The winger arrived at Stamford Bridge from FC Porto in the summer of 2013 but has since struggled to clinch a regular spot in the side and has since been farmed out on successive loan spells at Vitesse and Everton.
