According to the latest "ESPN sources", Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has rejected a move to the Chinese Super League as he has "no interest in making the move at this stage of his career". He supposedly wants to fight for his place at Chelsea, which we've heard multiple times before, including from the man himself.

ESPN also claim that the rumors of a West Ham inquiry regarding a potential loan for the Man with the Magic Hat are nonsense; meanwhile Branislav Ivanovic, who's also been tenuously linked with the Hammers "is not ready to consider a move" to East London.
So it's situation unchanged for both Chelsea veterans, as they both look to stay and try to fight for their places in the starting lineup. As surprising as it would be to see them both starting consistently at this point, the reported commitment and attitude is noteworthy.
