Chelsea playmaker Willian has pledged his future to the Blues and declared his interest in signing a new contract, according to The Sun.
The Brazil international, 27, has been by far Chelsea's best player this season in what has been a disastrous attempt at defending a Premier League crown they won with so much ease last year.
The former Anzhi Makhachkala man has scored eight goals in all competitions and risen to prominance amidst the club's worst season for decades.

Willian still has two years remaining on his current contract, but such is the Brazilian's belief that his future remains at Chelsea he is keen on extending his stay beyond 2018.
The winger said of the matter: "The club knows exactly how I feel. I am very happy here. It was always my dream to come here when I was playing in Ukraine the realisation of a dream. I want to stay.
"But at the same time my head is calm I am just going to see how things go. I’m happy.
"I tend to not get involved in that side of things too much. I leave it up to my agent to deal with it but the club knows exactly how I feel."
If, as expected, Willian does sign a new deal, Chelsea fans will be optimistic of greater future prospects providing they can continue to hold onto their best players.
The Brazilian's performances in the Champions League group stages this campaign have seen his popularity sky-rocket in west London amidst times of adversity.
Hiddink's side are still in with a chance of success this season given they remain in Europe's elite competition alongside the FA Cup, but as they sit 14th and 19 points behind Premier League leaders Arsenal, their chances of defending their title appear slight.
