The agent of Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien has dismissed talk of a move to Inter Milan.

"I have read the English tabloids and seen the rumours," representative Fabien Piveteau told Tuttomercatoweb. "But I can say that Inter aren't trying to sign Essien. There has been absolutely no discussion.

"The player is very happy in London and still has four years left on his contract, so I don't see that he will be moving for the moment.

"In football anything can happen and everything changes, but Chelsea are a rich, powerful and ambitious club and he is happy to play for them."
