John Obi Mikel has no plans to quit Chelsea as midfielder insists Jose Mourinho wants him to stay at Stamford Bridge



Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel says he has no intention of leaving Stamford Bridge.

The 28-year-old Nigerian, the Blues’ second-longest serving player behind captain John Terry, is currently in the United States preparing for his 10th season with Jose Mourinho’s side.

Mikel has been linked with moves to United Arab Emirates club Al Ain and Turkish outfit Fenerbahce this summer, but he insists he will see out the remaining two years of his contract in west London.

‘I want to stay and the manager wants me to stay,’ he told the club website. ‘I’ve got two years here and I’m happy.

‘I like to be somewhere where I have developed friends and family. It’s like my family here and every day I come to work it is like coming in to see my family.

‘I know all the players and all the staff so it’s going to be a hard place to leave when my contract runs out but let’s see what happens. I want to see out my two years.’
