Eden Hazard has dismissed any chance of a move to Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain and revealed he is in talks with Chelsea over a new contract.

The Belgian forward scored 17 goals for José Mourinho's team last season and has been persistently linked with a big-money move to Paris over recent weeks.

However days after learning he would inherit the Blues' No.10 shirt - vacated by Juan Mata in January - the 23-year-old clarified he is going nowhere.

Hazard will start for Belgium at the World Cup finals

Hazard told Belgian newspaper La Dernière Heure: "I am staying at Chelsea 100%.

"Of course in football you never know but I am under contract with Chelsea and I want to stay there. And I am in discussions with Chelsea for a new contract.

"It is only the beginning of the talks right now so we have time, but the fact that Chelsea have offered me a new deal means they have a lot of confidence in me that I can do a good job and that they can count on me.

"PSG never made any suggestions to me personally."

Hazard joined for Chelsea for £32 million from Lille in June 2012 and was named the club's player of the year last season.
