Giroud U-turn; now chasing new Chelsea contract

Olivier Giroud is chasing a new contract with Chelsea.

Giroud is eager to stay in west London for the foreseeable future with the in-form Frenchman aiming to secure a new contract at Chelsea.

"Yes. Yes. Yeah, of course," he told the Evening Standard. "There are a few months to go, games to win and maybe another trophy, and after, you know, I think I have two (or) three nice seasons in front of me. It's not the time to talk about contracts and everything but I will take a decision when it comes."

Giroud revealed the first half of the season was a struggle having seen first team opportunities severely limited.

"It was a tough month for me. I just spoke with the manager and I believed what he said, that I would get my chance and he has given me my chance.

"The transfer window is behind me. I'm a Chelsea player, I'm happy here again and that's the most important thing."
