Ziyech not leaving Chelsea in January

Despite speculation linking Moroccan international Hakim Ziyech with a move to German side Borussia Dortmund, it is unlikely that he will be leaving Chelsea in January.

Ziyech, Frank Lampard’s first signing after the lifting of the club’s transfer ban, has struggled for regular game time at Stamford Bridge, and he is reported to be unhappy with his lot in West London.

He began this season well and starred in their pre-season penalty shoot-out win over Villareal in the European Super League, but a shoulder injury has since hampered his progress, and he is now only just working his way back to full fitness,

However, suggestions that he could be allowed to leave on loan to the German club once the January window opens, have been described as wide of the mark by his manager Thomas Tuchel.

He insists that Ziyech remains an integral part of his squad, and that he can expect opportunities as the season progresses.
