Chelsea assistant manager Steve Clarke believes that Geremi's plea to leave Chelsea is borne of frustration.

Clarke insists that Geremi will not be sold this winter, and thinks that the Cameroon star may not have been as adamant about leaving as he was quoted as being.

"There's been one or two quotes attributed to our players over the course of the season," Clarke explained to Sky Sports News

"Players that are not as involved as others can be a little bit frustrated.

"Geremi played on Saturday so maybe his timing's not the best but we don't even know if he said those things. It's only rumour and supposition.

"We want to keep everybody that we've got in our squad now.

"We've got a lot of tough matches between now and the end of the season and we will need everybody."
