Chelsea keeper Cech dismisses exit talk

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has rubbished reports suggesting he is considering leaving Stamford Bridge.

The future of the 25-year-old Czech Republic international was brought into question after claims from his agent earlier in the week that a "a very big European club is ready to pay £32million for Petr".

Several reports also suggested the highly-rated goalkeeper was unhappy at being denied a bumper new deal to match the wages of top-earners John Terry, Michael Ballack and Didier Drogba.

However with two years still to run on his existing deal, Cech claims he has absolutely no plans to quit the Blues and is keen to sit down and discuss a new contract.

"Contrary to numerous press stories over the last couple of days, I would like to make it very clear to the Chelsea fans that I have no plans to leave the club," he said in a statement.

"My sole focus at the moment is next week's Champions League Final and then the Euros.

"I am very happy at Chelsea. I still have two years left on my contract and I believe the club will sit down with my representatives at the appropriate time to discuss an extension of my current contract."
