Chelsea striker, Michy Batshuayi, has reportedly decided not to leave the club to join Aston Villa on a six-month loan deal this January’s transfer window.
Aston Villa had contacted Chelsea over a possibility to sign the Belgium international on a short-term contract this month following Wesley Moraes’ knee ligament injury.
According to The Athletic, Batshuayi is unwilling to leave Stamford Bridge to join the Midlands club, adding that the 26-year-old wants to continue playing Champions League football for the Blues.
Batshuayi has been loaned out by Chelsea on three previous occasions to Dortmund, Valencia and Crystal Palace between 2018-2019.
The Belgium international is currently behind Tammy Abraham in Frank Lampard’s pecking order of strikers at the West London club.
