Mikel Obi hints at Chelsea exit

Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi, has said he will sit down with the club to discuss his future at the end of this season.

The 28-year-old has one year left on his current contract, but wants to play more if he stays at Stamford Bridge.

Mikel Obi has spent 10 seasons at Chelsea, but has rarely established himself as a regular starter under the many managers Roman Abramovich has employed.

 With Antonio Conte hotly tipped to take over from Guus Hiddink ahead of next season, the Nigerian admits he could leave.

“I have one more season with Chelsea, but I know when this season ends we will definitely sit down and try to sort out whatever needs to be sorted out,” he told Goal.

“If it means me leaving, fine. If it means me staying, then I have to play because one thing I don’t want to do is to sit on the bench like I did before.

“Wherever it is, I just want to play. Legacy is important, and I’m very proud and happy that I’ve kept this legacy to be able to achieve what I have achieved.”
