The 22-year-old Spaniard signed for the Blues in 2011, but has been limited to just 22 appearances in that time, and spent last season on loan at Valencia.

Romeu penned a new deal with Chelsea that keeps him at Stamford Bridge until the summer of 2017, however the former Barcelona youngster admitted that should the opportunity arise, a longer spell in Germany would be appealing.

"Maybe I am staying for a longer period of time," Romeu told kicker-Sportmagazin.

"You cannot rule anything out in football.

"I have experienced a technically demanding game in the Spanish league, football in England is more physical, and the Bundesliga is a mixture of that.

"My ambition is to quickly learn the German language."

Despite this, Romeu insisted his focus is to retain a first-team starting berth this season, and make the most of his opportunity.

"I want to help VfB Stuttgart achieve a good season and be a full part of the team," Romeu added.

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
