Borini said: ‘It is a fact I will leave Chelsea, because I didn’t renew the contract. I want to carry on playing and I would like to stay in England because it is the best football in Europe.”

The Italian also paid tribute to current Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers, who was previously youth-team coach at Chelsea: ‘Brendan has been great and helped me a lot. He just got my confidence higher and higher, which is very important for a young player.”
