Michy Batshuayi determined to stay with Chelsea

Michy Batshuayi is determined to stay with Chelsea this season.

The Belgium striker scored twice in the development squad's 3-0 victory over Liverpool at Stamford Bridge last night.

The London Evening Standard says Batshuayi wants to stay and fight for his place at Chelsea but will reassess the situation in January.

Last night the only football Batshuayi has played this season having been ignored by coach Frank Lampard, who was watching from the stands on Monday evening, in the three senior games played so far.

While the transfer window closed in England on August 8, it remains open in other countries and they can still sign players from Premier League clubs.

Batshuayi is currently behind Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham in the pecking order at Chelsea, but is not going to push for a move elsewhere yet.
