​Conte on the possible coming and goings at Chelsea

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has been talking about the chances of certain squad members being offloaded this transfer window.

On the future of back-up keeper Asmir Begovic: "Begovic is a Chelsea player and I'm happy to have him in the squad. I'm happy with his commitment on and off the pitch. He's important in the changing room. Only if we have a good substitution he can go, otherwise he stays here.

On full-back Branislav Ivanovic's chances of leaving:

"I don't know the chances. This month has this window and there is a lot of speculation - a lot of lies and lot of truths in some situations. There are four days to finish this window and then we see this situation. I don't what will happen at the end of this window. The club knows my thoughts.

"We need to improve our squad in the number of players. If it happens I'm very happy.

"The FA Cup is now a good opportunity to see players that are not playing a lot

On the future of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Nathaniel Chalobah:

"They will continue to stay at Chelsea for the rest of the season."
