CONFIRMED: Chelsea goalkeeper wants to STAY despite offers from Italy


Chelsea's third goalkeeper Marco Amelia says he would be delighted to sign a new contract with the club.

The 35-year-old joined the Blues last year on a free transfer after regular goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois suffered a serious knee injury.

He is wanted by a number of clubs in Italy but his objective is to stay in London.

"My future at Chelsea? I'm negotiating with the club, I am happy with the experience I made in London," Amelia told Radio Deejay.

"The Premier League is becoming more and more 'Italian', I am happy [that Walter Mazzarri has joined Watford].

"Many asked me about [Antonio] Conte here at Chelsea, I have spoken with him a number of times this year.

"[Thibaut] Courtois? Unfortunately for Italy [who will face Belgium in Euro 2016] he is fully fit so he will play."
