Chelsea have again insisted no offer has been made to Russia coach Guus Hiddink.

Roman Abramovich's office issued a statement in Russia in response to the speculation and Chelsea insist the situation remains unchanged.

A Chelsea statement read: "Information that Mr Abramovich is preparing to, or already has, offered Gus Hiddink a management post at Chelsea is untrue.

"On the contrary, Mr Abramovich is very pleased the Russian Football Union has offered to renew Mr Hiddink's contract until 2010.

"Thanks to Mr Hiddink the Russian national team has become more exciting and solid, giving hope for achieving serious success on both the European and international levels."
