England striker Daniel Sturridge has denied demanding a new and improved contract at Chelsea.

Reports emerged this month claiming Sturridge was unhappy at the Blues' refusal to begin discussing extending his current deal, which still has more than two years to run.

But he said: "I love playing for Chelsea. Some of the stuff I've read about me asking for a contract is not true."
