At a Chelsea fans forum, Grant said: "You can see how he behaves in training and in matches. He gives 100 per cent, though of course he won't score in every match. He is fighting well and playing well, being fully committed.

"It's not always as it says in the papers. It says from a few years ago that he wants to leave, but I believe that is from his agent and not him. There is no problem with him."
