Chelsea have failed with a bid to sign Shakhtar Donetsk star Willian, according to the Ukrainian champions.

Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas all but ruled out a move for the 23-year-old Brazil midfielder after Saturday's Barclays Premier League goalless draw at Norwich. But Shakhtar chief executive Sergei Palkin has claimed he rejected a £16.7million offer from Chelsea, having last week declared he would be prepared to sell for £25million.

"We have received a bid from Chelsea for Willian valued at 20million euros, but he is not for sale," Palkin told Sky Sports News.
