Fernando Torres wants to stay at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea forward Fernando Torres says he won't be leaving Stamford Bridge this summer after getting assurances from the club.

The form of the now departed Didier Drogba meant the Spaniard started the majority of the Blues' key games from the bench, leading to reports that the former Liverpool man was unhappy at Stamford Bridge.

However after meeting with the club management, Torres says he wants to stay and cant wait for the start of the 2012-13 campaign.

"My goal was to talk to them at the end of the season," Torres told his official website. "I needed to know what plans they had for me.

"We've talked and now I have no doubt what they expect of Fernando Torres. I just want to start already next season.

"At Chelsea I am very happy and I never said the opposite. I still have a lot to do in this club, meet personal goals, confidence to return."
