Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi had been linked with a move to Belgian side Anderlecht, managed by former Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany.

The 25-year-old has had limited game time at Chelsea since joining in 2016 and has had just one substitute appearance for the Blues this season, against Sheffield United over the weekend.

Batshuayi responded to rumours linking him with a move to Anderlecht by tweeting an image of himself in a Standard Liege kit, displaying a middle finger.

A move to Anderlecht would be seen as a slap in the face to former club Standard Liege, who played an integral role in Batshuayi’s career in his formative years.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has previously insisted Batshuayi won’t be leaving the club.

“I thought it was a good performance in terms Michy got the fitness work that he needed out of the game,” Lampard said, referring to Batshuayi’s performance in an U23 game against Liverpool last month.

“He scored two good goals – two very good finishes – and I thought he worked hard. That’s exactly what the game was there for for him.

“As I said before here and I’ll say on the training pitch: we need Michy. We need the competition up front with the three strikers that we have.”
