Published Add your comment

Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka has accepted the club's decision to show him the door.

Manager Andre Villas-Boas on Saturday revealed that Anelka and Alex had both submitted transfer requests that had been accepted, and that the duo would be allowed to leave when the January transfer window opens.

And Anelka, who has been starved of opportunities this season owing to the emergence of Daniel Sturridge, has confirmed he is ready to move on. In a statement on his official website, www.nicolas-anelka.net, Anelka wrote: "I`ve known for a little while where I`ll be on January 2."
