The Ghanaian midfielder moved to Stamford Bridge from Lyon in August 2005 and has established himself as a key member of the side.

He recently demonstrated his commitment to the club by signing a new four-year contract but he has no plans to leave when that deal expires.

"I'd be very happy if I could play for Chelsea until I stop. It is a great club and I've really settled here," he told The Sun.

"It was always a dream of mine since I was a young boy to play in England.

"Chelsea have helped with that dream and I am glad that I can give something back to the club. It would be good to stay for a long time."
