Olivier Giroud has hinted he could be set to extend his stay at Chelsea, despite rumours of a possible exit beginning to circulate.
The World Cup winner left London rivals Arsenal in the January transfer window and signed on an 18-month deal.
Giroud also has the option of another 12 months but, with his playing time limited under new boss Maurizio Sarri, it has been suggested that he could leave the club.
But now the 31-year-old, who is yet to start a Premier League game this season, says he might yet stay.
“I still have one year of my contract plus an optional year in option,” he is quoted as saying by Telefoot.
“I spoke with the management, which is currently in favour of this additional year.”
The powerful striker arrived in the Premier League in 2012, joining the Gunners from Montpellier.
After five-and-a-half years in north London, he moved west and has since scored three goals in 16 Premier League outings for Chelsea.
