Chelsea target van Persie insists he is ‘dedicated’ to Fenerbahce

Robin van Persie has dismissed rumours that he could be set to join Chelsea in the winter.

The Dutch striker has been a constant subject of speculation regarding a potential Premier League return in January but the 32-year-old has indicated he will stick true to the contract he signed with Fenerbahce in July.

"There is a lot of talk about Chelsea and Barcelona but I have received no offers and I am dedicated to Fenerbahce," the former Arsenal captain told Turkish Football.

Since arriving in Istanbul from Manchester United, van Persie has scored six goals in 19 appearances in all competitions for the Turkish giants.
