Drogba wants new Chelsea deal

Published Add your comment

Didier Drogba has revealed he would sign a new contract with Chelsea if the west London club offer him one.

The Ivory Coast international has consistently been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge during a frustrating campaign that has seen him score just once in the Premier League.

Drogba has, however, dismissed such talk and told The Sun: "I am happy with everyone here and want to be a Chelsea player."

He added: "I want people to stop talking about me going back to Marseille or going to Inter Milan. I want to stay until the end of my contract. I love the fans.

"My family love it here and we want to stay. There have been no talks about extending my deal but there is time for that.

"I would stay if they offered me a new deal. I know that first I need to show I am still the Didier Drogba this club knows."

New boss Guus Hiddink will take charge of the team, who sit fourth in the Premier League and in danger of missing out on a Champions League place, for the first time at Aston Villa on Saturday and Drogba admits the Dutchman's arrival has reinvigorated him and the team.

"Hiddink is just what Chelsea need right now," he said.

"He is working us very hard and that is just what Chelsea need right now.

"When you train hard, you play hard. It is very simple. You play the way you train and, after the session on Wednesday, we were on our knees."
