Kalou, 27, still has four years left on his contract, although a number of Premier League clubs, including West Ham, Everton and QPR are reportedly trying to lure him away in the January transfer window.

The Ivory Coast international has only scored three goals since joining Lille from Chelsea in the summer and reports suggest he has failed to settle in.

But Kalou believes he is much happier now than he was playing in the Premier League.

"I do not know if I will leave in this window," Kalou told Sky Sports. "I have a four-year contract with Lille. I am settling.

"They have a great coach who has faith in me. He wants me here and I want to be here and play week in, week out, which I was not doing at Chelsea."
