Ivory Coast international set for Stamford Bridge stay.

Chelsea forward Didier Drogba is ready to sign up for another season as a Blues player according to reports from French source TeleFoot.

Many may have expected the Ivorian to take a back-seat next term, perhaps with a view to moving into a coaching role, but the powerful forward is seemingly set to take the field in Blues colours in 2015/16.

Drogba may prove crucial in the coming weeks with Diego Costa suspended for his ‘stamp’ on Liverpool’s Emre Can earlier this month.

The former Marseille man has bagged 163 goals for Chelsea with six of those coming this term despite having started just eight matches in all competitions.
