Premier League star gives Chelsea transfer indication after latest statement


Ivan Toney has given the likes of CHELSEA another indication that he plans to stay put at Brentford.

We are one of the sides that are reportedly desperate to sign the striker and bring him to Stamford Bridge – but it seems that the big striker has other plans and is keen to stay put this transfer window.

Filmed FaceTime conversation with Pontus Jansson for Brentford’s in-house YouTube channel, Toney reassured his former captain that he had no intention of forcing a move away from the Gtech Community Stadium this winter.

‘I saw that Thomas [Frank] put out also, “Ivan is staying”, I love it,’ Jansson who left Brentford to join Malmo last summer, told Toney.

During an interview Sky Sports last week, Toney thanked Brentford for the support they had shown during on the sidelines and insisted he remained fully focused on repaying the club’s faith.

“Thomas Frank has been nothing but the biggest help I could have asked for, the whole club have. From putting on extra sessions on for me, from taking their time out to put a session on, go outside when it’s raining when I’m not even supposed to be in these kinds of things.

‘I have a lot to repay them and I can’t wait to try and do that.

“Everybody has been supportive. I feel like, especially the club they were right behind me from the first bit and the fans were behind me as well, which was a massive part. Even when I wasn’t at their games, they were singing my name.

‘And I got loads of messages on social media. A friend of mine sent me a video of the fans singing my name, I got goosebumps to know that they’re still behind me, even though I’m not there.

“Everyone knows Brentford is a family club, they have been nothing but amazing for me. I can’t thank them enough, especially the fans.

‘They were behind me from the first minute as well. So it’s kind of like I have a lot to repay.”
