Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech's future with the Premier League leaders has been shrouded in uncertainty after the 32 year old hinted he could leave Stamford Bridge on deadline day.
After Thibaut Courtois was declared as The Blues's No.1 for the new season, the Czech Republic international has been forced to sit-out the club's first three league games of the season.
Reports have linked Cech with a move away from Chelsea but manager Jose Mourinho has remained adamant he will remain in west London to provide adequate cover for Courtois in his first full season in English football.
But while on international duty with the Czech Republic, Cech has told sport.cz: "I've been at the club for 10 years, the situation is now new to me.
"The three opening matches I could not play for the team. I have no reason to panic, pack up and leave.
"I am a Chelsea player, where I have two more years of my contract. In football, nothing can be predicted in advance, nothing is ever perfect.
"A lot of players go on representative duty, yet still many transfer clubs. The offer would have to be right for everyone. I do not exclude anything (or) know the answer."
After joining from Rennes in 2004, Cech was instantly installed as Chelsea's first choice in goal and oversaw a decade of success at the club following Roman Abramovich's takeover.
Courtois joined Chelsea from Genk in 2011 but a three-year loan spell at Atletico Madrid where he won the La Liga title, the Europa League and reached the Champions League final meant his long-term future was uncertain.
However, Mourinho has intrusted the 22 year old with the No.1 role but the Portuguese boss wants Cech to also remain at the club.
"I hope Petr doesn't want to go and I hope he doesn't have offers to go and, if he does have offers, he refuses to go," said Mourinho earlier this month.
"I'd be delighted to have two of the best keepers in the world in my squad."
The pressure on Chelsea to offload a foreign player in order to meet Premier League and Champions League squad regulations had seemingly eased following the departure of Marco van Ginkel, but Cech's departure would allow for a further overseas addition in the January transfer window.
