Petr Cech
Petr Cech to remain at Chelsea until the end of the season at leastGetty

Petr Cech has not held talks with Roma and will not be leaving Chelsea during the January transfer window, his agent has claimed.

The 32-year-old goalkeeper has been replaced as the Blues' first choice in goal by Thibaut Courtois this season and has been restricted to just five appearances.

Manager Jose Mourinho claims the demands of the club this term accommodate for two world-class goalkeepers in his squad but Cech's peripheral role has heightened talk of a winter exit.

Wide-ranging reports have suggested Serie A side Roma will look to capitalise on the situation with a £7m bid for the Czech Republic international but the goalkeeper's agent has ended the possibility of a mid-season move.

"There has been no contact with AS Roma," Cech's agent Viktor Kolar was quoted as saying by Italian outlet Retesport.

"Certainly Petr will not move during the transfer market in January."

Speculation over an approach from Roma was fuelled by uncertainty surrounding their current goalkeeper, Morgan de Sanctis, whose contract was set to expire in the summer.

The Giallorossi goalkeeper has ended talk of his own exit, however, signing a one-year contract extension at the Stadio Olimpico.

Cech's only appearance in the Premier League this season has come off the substitutes' bench when he replaced Courtois after 23 minutes in Chelsea's 2-0 win over Arsenal in October.

He has made a further four appearances in the Capital One Cup and the Champions League but, worryingly for the former Rennes stopper, Mourinho has persisted with the Belgian number one in most of the club's European games, starting three group games to Cech's two.

However, the Chelsea boss recently rubbished claims the long-serving Cech will leave in January.

"I believe in what is happening at this moment. At this moment, Petr Cech is our goalkeeper and has a contract for two more years," Mourinho said in a recent press conference.

"He's a fantastic professional and puts the team's interests first. Not once has Petr Cech knocked on my door to inform me of his desire to accept some proposal. This is my truth. Nothing more I can say."
