“Whether I’m going to stay here longer or not I don’t know. I try not to think that far ahead. The people who need to think that far ahead will do that and whatever needs to be done will be done.
“There’s still a long way to go in the season but I know that I have it in me to do it.
“Mentally, I was ready to do it and if the opportunity comes at Chelsea, or here, or at another club, or wherever it may be, I’m prepared for it and can learn a lot from it, so it’s an exciting time for myself.”

Chelsea set to make approach for creative Real Madrid winger
According to latest report, Chelsea are reportedly keen to re-signing Real Madrid forward Eden Hazard back to Stamford Bridge.
The Belgium international represented the West London club between 2012 and 2019, founding back of the nets 110 times in 352 games for the capital heavyweights before joining the Los Blancos in a big-money move.
The 30-year-old has failed to make his mark at Santiago Bernabeu, though, managing just four goals and seven assists in 35 games, while he has struggled with a number of muscular problems.
Belgium international forward could be out until March with his latest issue, and ex-Manchester United forward Dimitar Berbatov recently urged Los Blancos to sell the Belgian in the nearby future before his price tag falls more.
According to Defensa Central, the Blues would be interested in re-signing the Belgian forward, however, would only be prepared to pay in the region of €50m (£44m).
Hazard penned a five-year contract with the Spanish champions upon his arrival and therefore still has more than three years left on the deal that helps him to earn £416,000 per week.
The Belgian has only managed three goals in 13 games for Zinedine Zidane’s side this campaign, however, has featured in each of their last five La Liga games.
