thumbnail Hello,

The Ivory Coast international is only concerned about winning silverware this season and not what lies ahead, even though his current deal has under three months left to run

Salomon Kalou is unconcerned about his Chelsea future, insisting that he hopes to remain at the club, despite his contract currently set to expire at the end of the season.

The Ivory Coast international’s only focus is winning silverware this campaign after being given a new lease of life under interim head coach Roberto Di Matteo.

The 26-year-old appeared infrequently under previous manager Andre Villas-Boas, who was sacked last month, but has started five and appeared from the substitute bench in the other three of the Italian’s eight games in charge.

“I am not thinking about a transfer yet," Kalou told reporters.

"At the end of the season everything will be clear in everyone’s head.

“I am a Chelsea player and I want to finish the season strongly.

“Hopefully we can win the Champions League and the FA Cup and also finish in the Champions League positions."

Kalou's goal was the difference in the Blues' 1-0 away win over Benfica in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, though the Portuguese side prepared for the return trip to Stamford Bridge with a 2-1 domestic victory against Braga on Saturday.
