Robert Huth has told Chelsea that he does not want to join Bayern Munich, or indeed any other club.

Chelsea looked in danger of losing the German defender when Bayern said they wanted to sign him. Huth's eagerness to stay indicates that even the players on the fringes of Jose Mourinho's squad are happy to stay. He said: "I'm staying here, unless the club wants to get rid of me. It's not an issue, even if some people say it is."

Huth, who has made just two starting appearances and four as substitute this season, added: "The manager said that from the first day he came here, he wanted to have a group and you can see we've got that now. I've never had the feeling of being out of it since I came here nearly five years ago. When I was injured, the whole staff were absolutely magnificent."

Chelsea meet Bayern in the quarter-finals of the Champions' League assuming the sport's European governing body, Uefa, does not throw them out following their disrepute charge relating to the trip to Barcelona.
