John Obi Mikel remains committed to Chelsea for this season.

The Nigeria midfielder had been linked with Galatasaray earlier this summer.

But his agent John Shittu told the London Evening Standard: "He loves this club, the manager knows him and likes him and he will not be going anywhere during this transfer window. Some clubs came in and expressed their interest but that is where it stopped.

"They were never allowed to get to the point where we could even begin to start talking about valuation or negotiation."
