Blues striker rubbishes move talk


Striker Didier Drogba has rejected talk of a move and revealed that he plans to stay at Chelsea until at least the end of the season.

Drogba, who has just six months left on his present deal at Stamford Bridge, has been heavily linked with a move abroad with reports this week suggesting he was set to link up with former Blues teammate Nicolas Anelka at Chinese side Shanghai Shenua.

But the 33-year-old, currently away at the African Nations Cup with the Ivory Coast, has hit back at the reports and insisted that he is happy to see out at least the remaining months of his contract.

Drogba told France Football when asked if he was leaving: “Not before next June.

“I’d like to find more fun, chills, fervour, passion and pressure on the field. Everything that makes the salt of my profession.”

Drogba has scored 98 league goals in 217 appearances for Chelsea.
