The Nigeria captain and long-serving Chelsea midfielder John Mikel Obi, hasn’t made a match-day squad for Chelsea since Antonio Conte took charge and has found himself out of favour at Stamford Bridge.

However, his agent John Shittu has said that the Chelsea midfielder and manager are still in talking terms and anything can happen.

“Obi Mikel and Antonio have been speaking,” Shittu told Goal. “The manager, club and player have been talking. So I am not in a position to tell about what they have been speaking about, in the next few weeks things should be clearer.

“We have been having meeting with a few parties who are interested in him, once we are able to agree the way forward with Chelsea, then we will take it from there.

“There are a few clubs in Europe and Asia, they are numerous and are interested in him because he is a quality player, aged only 29, and we just have to speak, so we will see. A lot of interest is there.

“There is no decision made yet and it is still 50/50 whether he will sign or leave. A lot can happen in the next months, never say never in football.” Shittu said.
