Chelsea: Sturridge will stay put

Football Transfer Centre

Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas will not let Daniel Sturridge leave the club. The England prospect started the game at the weekend against Sunderland ahead of Fernando Torres.

Chelsea have now revealed that Sturridge is firmly in their plans for the coming season.

"We had a lot of teams calling Daniel to take him on loan during the transfer window but it was never going to happen," Villas-Boas confirmed.

"The technical staff and I all had the feeling we should bring him in. We have an outstanding player.

"There is competition for all the main forward positions and it's important we have that."
