Chelsea midfielder Jorginho: I'm staying; there's a lot to do here

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho says he's happy in London.

Jorginho has regularly been linked with a return to Italy's Serie A, but one mention of new boss Thomas Tuchel's infectious man-management reveals the 29-year-old's determination to stay at Chelsea for the long haul.

"Of course, of course I do feel settled," Jorginho told the PA news agency. "When I came here, everything was different. But I felt welcome straight away.

"It feels great after three years, and I know everyone here appreciates what I try to do for the club and for the people. So it feels like home now in England.

"It's definitely not the time to think about contracts with two finals to play! How could I want to leave the club? That's not the point. It's not the point even talking about it now.

"I've got two more years and like I said, I really feel at home here. So there's no point actually even talking about it. And we have only just started under Thomas - we've got a lot more to do here."
