According to getwestlondon.co.uk, German World Cup winner Andre Schurrle will not be leaving Chelsea.  

The Chelsea forward who scored a brilliant goal in his side's 3-1 win at Burnley, has moved swiftly to deny all speculation linking him with an exit from the London club.

Responding to the talk of a move to La Liga champions Atletico Madrid, Schurrle replied: “No, I am very happy at Chelsea. This is where I want to play, where I want to play for the fans. There is nothing more to say.”

“I enjoyed the World Cup a lot, so I got out of that with a lot of confidence,” he said.

“I came back to Chelsea, and obviously had a very short break. I was only two and a half weeks at the ocean and could relax.

“But from zero to 100 [miles per hour] – I am hungry, I want to achieve something with Chelsea. I want to win titles with Chelsea.

“So I worked hard these two weeks. I worked a lot – extra for me as well. The only thing I can do is to work and give everything to be 100 per cent in the games.

“I think it was a good start for me [at Burnley], but of course we can be better. And when I am 100 per cent fit, there will be more.”

Chelsea host Leicester City on Saturday at Stamford Bridge. The match kicks off at 16:00.
