Pedro: Linked with move away this summer.

Chelsea winger Pedro has played down reports he wants to leave Stamford Bridge and says he is eager to begin work under Guus Hiddink.

The former Barcelona star made a bright start to life in the Premier League, but Chelsea’s struggles, coupled with his own injury problems have ensured it’s been a harder-than-expected first year in England for Pedro.

Some reports have claimed Pedro could consider quitting the club as soon as January, but the Spain international insists he is relishing the chance to play under the new boss.

“I’m happy here. This information that I’m not is false. I am very satisfied to be here in this club,” he said to the Evening Standard.

“I am happy with the supporters and this team. Obviously the situation is not good but together it is possible for us to climb the table.

“Guus Hiddink is a very good coach and I am sure the club are confident about him. He spoke with me after the Sunderland game for a minute in Spanish, and I had a good feeling.

“For me it was perfect. He was telling me is happy here and with the team.”
