Schurrle not going to Chelsea - Leverkusen's Voller

Bayer Leverkusen general manager Rudi Voller has ruled out the sale of Andre Schurrle to Chelsea.

The 21-year old Germany international has been linked with the Blues in recent weeks but Voller has made it clear that he will not be departing the BayArena.

"There is no alternative to the decision of not selling Andre Schurrle," Voller told kicker-Sportmagazi. "We are unable to sign a replacement.

"Those adequate players that are available are too expensive and therefore we would be forced to sign a weaker player overpriced.

"The matter is over with and I have also told Andre so."

Leverkusen director Wolfgang Holzhauser added: "We have not received any new bid from Chelsea for Andre Schurrle. And we really do not want to talk about this topic anymore."
