Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink recently confirmed that Drogba's return to Stamford Bridge was not on the short-term agenda.
“In the short-term, yes [Drogba will not return]," said Hiddink.
“But in the longer term we talked about players of a big influence or big image for this club, they are welcome. There is no time issue on this. I wish him all the best now for one of his last seasons."
