Chelsea captain Marcel Desailly has promised to stay at the club and fight for his place in the first-team.
Desaiily has been linked with moves to French club Marseille
The France defender, who was left out of Chelsea's 3-0 victory over Portsmouth on Sunday, denied he was moving to French club Marseille.
The 35-year-old World Cup winner said: "The coach simply decided to rotate his squad and to rest me.
"I am the captain of Chelsea and my family and I want to stay in London."
Desailly had played poorly in the 4-2 Boxing Day defeat to Charlton, which came on the back of reports Chelsea were willing to sell him.
Desailly made his name with Marseille and won the Champions League title with them in 1993.
