Chelsea striker insists he wants to stay at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea's Samuel Eto'o has taken to social media to confirm his commitment to the Stamford Bridge club.

The 32-year-old arrived in England on a free transfer from Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala in August 2013, linking up again with Jose Mourinho after the pair enjoyed a trophy laden spell at Inter Milan.

With his contract set to expire in the summer, Eto'o had been rumoured to fancy a move back to Spain having admitted how much he misses the country where he made his name with spells at Barcelona and Real Mallorca.

Eto'o has denied this, posting a statement that read: "False and degrading information have been published about me saying: "Samuel Eto'o doesn't want to stay at Chelsea...

"I just want to remind to all that I have a tremendous love to all @chelseafc , I have a lot of respect for my leaders and my teamates, I love Chelsea fans, and I will keep on giving everything I have in order to defend the blues."

His time in West London has been somewhat hit and miss, having found the back of the net just once in his opening 10 games for the club.

Since then the Cameroon international has added a further seven goals to his tally, including a hat-trick against Manchester United, as Chelsea have moved to the top of the Premier League.

He has, however, hit another dry spell, failing to score in his last seven appearances and Chelsea continue to be linked with other strikers, including Atletico Madrid's Diego Costa.

With Fernando Torres and Demba Ba also struggling for goals this season, it's unlikely any arrivals would be based on the form of Eto'o alone, but he certainly has work to do to prove he's worthy of a contract extention at the Bridge.

The best way to do that? Fire the goals that bring the Premier League title back to Stamford Bridge for the first time since 2010.
