Rudiger rejected multiple offers to leave Chelsea: I wanted to stay and fight

Antonio Rudiger has revealed he rejected multiple offers to stay at Chelsea.

Tottenham, AC Milan and Roma tried to sign Rudiger after he fell out with Frank Lampard.

The German has not played for Chelsea this season but insists he is now ready to fight for his place.

"The club didn't tell me that it was absolutely necessary for me to find a new club and that they definitely didn't have me in their plans for the next few months," he told The Athletic.

"I also turned down one or two options myself. I wasn't prepared to pack it all in simply because I had been left out a few times. I enjoy living in London and like being at Chelsea."

He added: "Naturally, I looked at a couple of options in the two weeks before the end of the transfer window.

"There was a possibility of a loan deal, in order for me to get more game time. Due to many different reasons and the shortage of time, nothing materialised in the end."
