Conte: I'm happy at Chelsea

Antonio Conte insists he is happy to stay at Chelsea even though reports suggest he is keen to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.

The Italian's current deal with last season's Premier League champions expires in 2019 but it has been suggested that he would prefer to move on at the end of the current campaign.

Conte is frustrated with his lack of squad depth this season and admitted earlier this week that he does not have a lot of influence over who Chelsea sign in the transfer market.

Chelsea have been linked with a host of strikers this month, including Ashley Barnes and Peter Crouch, with Edin Dzeko supposedly their latest target.

When asked if he was happy with the transfer set-up at the club, Conte replied: "It is right to have this type of situation. I am repeating always the same things that I am the coach and my main task is to try to do the best for this club. To try to improve my players for this club.

"As I said before the transfer market, there is the club to speak about this. If there is news they will tell you about the news.

"I am happy. I am happy to work with my players. I am happy to work for this club. I am happy to try every day to put all of myself into this job. I am happy for this."

Chelsea, 4/5 to win the FA Cup this season, can be backed at 3/10 to beat Newcastle United in a fourth-round clash on Sunday.
