Striker Nicolas Anelka has told Chelsea he is ready to pledge his future to the club while the Blues wait for their France teenager Gael Kakuta to make up his mind over a new deal.
Anelka scored his 50th goal in Chelsea’s colours in the 2-0 Champions League victory over Spartak Moscow in midweek and is in the best form of his career. The former France international has scored eight goals so far this season and is so content at Stamford Bridge that he is already looking to extend his contract at the end of the season.
“I don’t know what will happen in the future. After this season I have one more year on my current deal and I will see what will happen because you never know. But I am very happy here and I would be glad to sign for more years.” said Anelka.
“I am just very satisfied to achieve two landmarks with Chelsea in goals scored and how long I have spent here, it has just been special to score goals for Chelsea.”
He added: “It is the first time I have scored that many for any club but it is the first time I have spent more than two-and-a-half years at a club as well. It shows how happy I am at Chelsea. When I first signed here I knew had arrived at a big club and I wanted to stay as long as possible.” (ITV)
After being transferred across Europe throughout his entire career, Nicolas Anelka now seems settled at a club, and he has proved a fantastic asset for Chelsea since signing from Bolton Wanderers over two years ago.
Unlike a certain player who has been dominating the headlines over recent days, Anelka has shown a great deal of loyalty by openly stating his happiness at the club, and his eagerness to commit.
Anelka may be the wrong side of 30, but still looks to have a few more years of service left in him yet.
