Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou has told the club he wants to be guaranteed more game time before he commits his future reports

After starting the opening two Barclays Premier League games of the season, the 26-year-old Ivorian has started only once since, and is reportedly frustrated at a lack of playing time.

As a result, Kalou looked set to leave west London after falling down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge, but Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas has revealed that negotiations have begun over extending his deal.

"That's what every player wants to have, game time," said Kalou. "Because if you're not playing every weekend, how are you going to improve yourself?


"So it's very important to play to improve and to push yourself to the limit. That's what I'm looking for."

The two parties will need to reach agreement before the transfer window reopens in January, or else Chelsea will risk losing the African ace for nothing.

"I think we're going to agree on something good," added Kalou. "I want to stay, I want to be here. I like Chelsea. I've had a fantastic five seasons here and won some prizes.

"Chelsea are looking forward to the future and I'm still a young player and I think my future can be here."
