Chelsea's Florent Malouda insists he will stay at Stamford Bridge and see out the remainder of his contract, despite being linked with a summer move to the Serie A.

AC Milan, Roma and Inter have all reportedly expressed recent interest in Malouda.

Talk of Malouda's mooted move has developed since Andre Villas-Boas took over as Chelsea boss, but the 31-year-old winger believes he will continue playing under the new manager.

"My relationship with the coach is good. My contract at Chelsea runs until 2013, and I want to stay until 2014 at least," he told the Daily Express.

Meanwhile, widespread reports in the English media continue to link Arsenal's Samir Nasri with a switch to Chelsea, a move that would surely impact upon Malouda's tenure at the club.

Malouda has made 184 appearances and scored 42 goals for Chelsea since joining the club in 2007.
