Gael Kakuta claims to have been promised regular game time at Dijon and insists he returns to his French roots with nothing to prove.
The 20-year-old winger has opted to take in a spell in his homeland after enduring a frustrating time in England.
Chelsea still hope that he will fulfil his potential and become a key figure for them for many years to come, but the Blues are unable to offer him the opportunities he requires to work on his game.
They sent him on loan to Fulham last season and Bolton this, but both spells saw him limited to sporadic first-team appearances.
It is hoped that a loan switch to Dijon will see him shake off the shackles and fine tune a playing style which promises much but has delivered little to date.
Kakuta is adamant that he will not be using his time in France as an opportunity to prove a point, with it his sole intention to play as many games as possible and be a useful addition to the team.
"It will be good for me to experience Ligue 1," he said.
"What attracted me here is the coach. Patrice Carteron has managed to get the very best out of his players. Florent Malouda also convinced me.
"I hope I will get more opportunities here than I got in England.
"I am here because I have been guaranteed time on the field and I am not here to cause trouble.
"I have nothing to prove. When it is my time, I will show what I am capable of."
