Chelsea have rubbished suggestions Michael Ballack was omitted from their Champion League squad so they could cash in on him in January.

The Germany captain was not among the 23-man list submitted to UEFA last Friday, fuelling speculation he will be sold when the transfer window re-opens.

But Chelsea made their position clear in a statement on Thursday, which read: "Chelsea Football Club would like to reiterate that Michael Ballack´s omission from the UEFA Champions League group phase squad list was taken only because of injury."
