Andre Schurrle says that he was never interested in leaving Chelsea over the summer, despite reports linking him with an exit.

Chelsea forward Andre Schurrle has said that he is confident of a successful future with the club.

The German international joined the Blues last summer from Bayer Leverkusen, but failed to nail down a regular starting place in Jose Mourinho's side.

He had been linked with a move away from the club in recent months, but he has claimed that an exit from Stamford Bridge was never in question.

"Mourinho has given me this feeling that I would be a big part of the team. He plans with me and he wants me in this team and he wants to play me," The Mirror quotes him as saying.

"That's why I want to stay at this club. Everything here is good for me. I have the pressure to perform, I have the pressure to do well in training.

"I have the great fans that all support me here and so there was no question for me that I would leave this club in the summer. I just want to take the chances I get, improve my game, improve myself and we'll see what happens."

Schurrle has scored two goals in three Premier League appearances this season.
