Andre Schurrle responds to Chelsea exit talk
The Germany international says that he has no intention of quitting Stamford Bridge in January
Andre Schurrle has underlined his desire to stay at Chelsea and fight for his first-team place.
The Germany international’s future has been a source of speculation in recent months due to his lack of playing time for Jose Mourinho’s men.
Schurrle has started just four Premier League games this season but scored as Chelsea beat Sporting Lisbon 3-1 on Wednesday night.
And the World Cup winner insists that he is planning to stay at Stamford Bridge beyond the January transfer window.
“Of course I can just laugh all the talk of leaving off. I am not going to change the club in the transfer window,” Schurrle told the London Evening Standard.
“I am happy where I am, I am happy in London. I love the city, I love the fans. We have a great team and want to win something this season.
“This is where I belong and where I want to help. I know what the manager wants for me and that he likes me.”
