Andre Schurrle: No deal has been done with Chelsea as yet

Bayer Leverkusen forward Andre Schurrle remains hopeful of leaving the Bundesliga club in the summer, with Chelsea firm favourites to land him.

The 22-year-old, who has scored 14 times for the club this season, is expected to complete the formalities of a big-money switch to Stamford Bridge in the next few weeks.

However, the deal could be dependent on Kevin De Bruyne heading the other way, with the young Belgian now understood to prefer a move to Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund.

"We'll see. Certain things were promised to me," Schurrle told reporters following his side's 1-0 win at Hamburg on the final day of the Bundesliga season.

"I hope they will keep these promises. It also depends on Leverkusen. I think, it was my last match."

Meanwhile, Leverkusen's sporting director Rudi Voller revealed no deal had been done yet with the Europa League winners for Schurrle.

"Let's all stay cool. We said it is only possible, if we find a proper alternative."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
