Florent Malouda has restated his desire to stay at Stamford Bridge as he describes Chelsea as 'my team'.

The 31-year-old was speaking ahead of France's European qualifier against Albania, and as the transfer window begins to close. He reiterated his determination to stay at the club he joined four years ago.

Malouda said: “I've always been clear in my choices. It's going to be very difficult to take me out of my club.

"I've still got two years left on my Chelsea contract. My objective is to extend by one year until the 2014 World Cup.

"That hasn't changed and it won't change tonight."


 

Malouda has made 124 league appearances for Chelsea, but will have to negotiate a new contract with the club that assesses it's over 30s on a yearly basis.

The winger is part of an ageing squad and Andre Villas-Boas has been striving to bring in lively young players, but Malouda's determination to remain in London is clear, despite some strong interest from Juventus.
