Nicolas Anelka: Leaving Stamford Bridge
ANELKA: I KNOW WHERE I'M GOING
Nicolas Anelka says he knows where he will be playing come January.
Chelsea confirmed on Saturday that the striker's transfer request, along with that of defender Alex, had been accepted.
Anelka will now leave in next month's transfer window, although he has yet to reveal his destination.
In a statement on his official website, Anelka said: "I've known for a little while where I'll be on January 2.
"The club, which is going through a difficult time, has decided to work with Chelsea's players of the future and, as I am a good professional, I have accepted this."
Anelka's opportunites have been limited this season due to the emergence of Daniel Sturridge and a new contract was not forthcoming.
The French international joined Chelsea for £15million in January 2008.
