Adrian Mutu's agent says the Romanian striker will stay at Chelsea despite his row with coach Jose Mourinho. Mutu accused Mourinho of saying he was injured to stop him playing in a World Cup tie against the Czech Republic.

"Mutu has a very good contract with Chelsea and will remain Chelsea's player," agent Giovanni Becali said.

Earlier, reports suggesting Chelsea would recall Carlton Cole from a season loan at Aston Villa to replace Mutu were denied by the Midlands club.

"Chelsea have assured us they will not be doing so," a Villa spokesman told the club's official website.

despite it made to sound like all is well..i dont think they are are connecting. i think if there is a chance for him to go, it will happen, juventus came sooo close to signing him only for it to hit a snitch about the contract.

hehe....with all the money and players chelsea been dealing with i forgot about carlton cole, he seems to be good and does a good enough job for the respected teams he has been at loan to the last few seasons.

will be interesting to see what happens in january

a news link about carlton cole wanting to come back to chelsea when his spell at villa finishes

Carlton Cole says that he will not join Aston Villa permanently as he has been assured his long-term future lies at Chelsea.

The young striker is spending the season on loan at Villa Park, and David O'Leary has been keen on trying to sort out a permanent move at the end of the season.

Enigmatic striker Adrian Mutu looks set to leave Chelsea in the next transfer window after his stormy relationship with manager Jose Mourinho reached crisis-point.

The Romania marksman, 25, failed to show up for training on Tuesday and was believed to have been absent again today after reports of a blazing exchange with Mourinho when Mutu returned from international duty on Monday.

He has now contacted the club, whose spokeswoman said: "Adrian Mutu provided a perfectly valid reasion for his absence and the club is entirely comfortable with the situation."

But that is hardly likely to repair the damage of his rift with Mourinho, who was furious with Mutu for defying his wishes by playing for Romania on Saturday when there were fears the player was still carrying knee and thigh injuries.

Then Mutu claimed in the media that the pair are at loggerheads, although he has subsequently issued a public apology for openly criticising his Chelsea boss.

Mutu, who started with a rush of six goals in ten games after his 15.8 million move from Italian club Parma last season but then tailed off with just four more in the remainder of the campaign, could even be sacked for this latest breach of discipline.

However, it is more likely he will be put on the transfer list.
