Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon has reiterated that the club have no advanced plans to quit Stamford Bridge and move to another stadium.
The Blues reacted swiftly to deny a newspaper report they are looking to build a new stadium at a site in Battersea. Kenyon underlined the club's stance at the International Football Arena symposium at FIFA House in Zurich on Monday, where he also stated again the club would not strengthen the squad in January.
"We are not considering any advanced plans to move away from Stamford Bridge as recent reports have suggested," said Kenyon.
He added: "We get approached all the time about projects in west London especially where involving Chelsea could have a significant impact on that project or area.
"We get annoyed when our name is used to create a market for that property.
"In the current financial climate all stadium redevelopment discussions are naturally on the back burner and we are clear that only when all possibilities of redeveloping Stamford Bridge are exhausted will we seriously consider other alternatives."
Kenyon confirmed the club's stance on transfers while discussing the extraordinary global events of recent months.
"I have said before it is extremely unlikely we will spend in January and increase our squad," said Kenyon. "Luiz Felipe Scolari is on board with that. He has an excellent squad and he is doing a great job.
"We would have to sell someone if we decided to bring someone in to balance that situation, but at this stage we are not planning to bring anyone in."
