Cape Town - Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech wants assurance from the club that he'll reclaim his number one spot in goal before making a decision about whether or not to leave Stamford Bridge.

Cech's future at the London club has been called into question lately after manager Jose Mourinho started Thibaut Courtois against Burnley on Monday night.

According to the Daily Mail, the Czech international feels he has been left in the dark about his Chelsea future and wants assurance from the club over his first team chances, especially as Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco are both interested in signing the experienced keeper.

With just ten days left to go before the transfer window closes, the 32-year-old glovesman doesn't have much time to decide. Chelsea are adamant, however, that they want Cech to stay, despite their obvious intentions to keep him as a preferred number two.
