Guus Hiddink has confirmed that Loic Remy will not be leaving Chelsea this January, despite Diego Costa shaking off a knock to the knee sustained during Sunday's FA Cup win against Scunthorpe.

The French international has only played a bit-part role at Stamford Bridge since arriving from QPR in 2014 and was strongly linked with loan moves to Aston Villa and former club Newcastle United.

The Mirror even claimed he'd swap Chelsea's bench for Tottenham's, with Mauricio Pochettino seeking back-up for Harry Kane.

However, interim manager Hiddink ruled out a departure, saying: "He will stay until the end of the season. I have seen little of him because he repeatedly fell into injury. I am curious. I hope he will deliver if he is needed."

The 29-year-old has only started one league game for the Blues this season but Hiddink's words will offer hope that Remy will be an important player in dragging them up the Premier League table.

With Falcao still out with a thigh injury and the returning Patrick Bamford lacking game time, Chelsea are rumoured to be after another striker. Shakhtar's Alex Teixeira has been strongly linked.

"We must not go into this danger if something happens with one or two strikers," added the Dutchman. "The window opens and the mouth shuts. We are thinking. When you think, you don't speak normally. It can be harmful when you go public."

Hiddink was speaking ahead of tonight's home game with West Brom, where a win could put Chelsea up to 12th.
