Florent Malouda has spoken of his desire to fight for his future at Chelsea.

The France international is one of a number of players to have been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge. Having won the Champions League, there are suggestions that the Blues will look to overhaul their squad.

Malouda claims he has had assurances in the past that he was not for sale and he is looking to fight for more silverware next season.

"The European Super Cup and the Club World Cup are two competitions close to my heart," Malouda said.

"In five years at Chelsea, I have won five trophies, the ones that I came here to try and win. During the last two transfer windows, the club have said that I was not available for transfer."

Asked if that meant he still feels he has a future with Chelsea, Malouda replied: "Yes, and Chelsea know it.

"I knew at the beginning of the season I would not play all that often. This season has reminded of my first season at Chelsea. You have to accept it. I finished the previous campaign as Chelsea's leading scorer in the league and I started the next season on the bench. But I have had to prove myself in the past and always managed to impose myself."
