Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has pledged his loyalty to Chelsea despite failed January transfer away from Stamford Bridge.


Giroud hasn't play enough football this season after falling behind Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi in the pecking order.

A transfer away from Chelsea looked inevitable in January but Chelsea's inability to land their desired targets as his replacement stopped his departure, but the Frenchman hasn't lost hope of seeing regular action before the end of the year.

“I was about to leave,” he told the reporters last night.

“From mid-December until the end of January, I found myself between two camps.

“I am a Chelsea player, now I need to move on, move forward. I want to give everything for the team and obviously my personal target is to play as much as I can to play the Euros for my country. It is massive for me.

“Things like that [January], now I am 100 per cent focused on Chelsea's target and I want to keep fighting, come back on the score sheet and the team sheets and every single game is a big opportunity for me to show my desire to come back in the game.”

Abraham's injury and Batshuayi's poor form could open the door for Giroud who was very good in Chelsea 0-2 defeat to Manchester United at Stamford Bridge last night.
