Chelsea striker Anelka: I will consider transfer options before January

Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka says he'll consider his options closer to the January market. Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas said last week he expected the forward to depart on a free transfer next summer with his contract due to expire, but the player is not yet sure.

"I am linked everywhere but when you are linked it doesn't mean you want to leave," he told "I like Chelsea and first of all wanted to stay, that's why I am still here. I will see what happens in December and if I am still here I will see what happens in June.

"I am happy here, I like the club, everyone here, and after I will see what happens. It is not only down to me.

"I have been here almost four years now, and I am pleased with the way it has been. It could have been even better but I am still happy."
