Eden Hazard is committed to Lille - for this season.

The Belgium winger is reluctant to quit Lille midseason, particularly as he's already Cup-tied from the Champions League.

Those close to Hazard have told L'Equipe the midfielder has ruled out leaving in January, despite the firm interest from Chelsea and Manchester United.

Chelsea made a bid for Hazard last week, while United have also been in touch with Lille in recent days.

It hasn't been ruled out at Lille that a first option on Hazard could given to Chelsea - talks are continuing this week.
