Loic Remy: Chelsea striker wanted by Aston Villa

Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink expects Loic Remy to stay at Stamford Bridge after the France striker was linked with a switch to the Chinese Super League.

A number of high-profile footballers have moved from Europe to the Far East in recent weeks, with Colombian striker Jackson Martinez joining Guangzhou Evergrande from Atletico Madrid for £32million and Ramires swapping Chelsea for Jiangsu Suning in a £25million switch.

Remy has been linked with Shanghai Shenhua, who are reportedly ready to bid £11million for the 29-year-old striker.

The winter transfer window in China does not close until February 26, but Hiddink expects Remy to remain at the club.

The Dutchman said: “I think this squad we have now will stay until the end of the season.”

Remy may want to stay in Europe with the former QPR and Newcastle striker hoping to win a place in Didier Descahmps’ France squad for Euro 2016.

The forward is currently on the sidelines with a calf injury.
