Quotes attributed to the Nigeria international, who is currently playing in the Confederations Cup in Brazil, have appeared in the Turkish media, suggesting that the 26-year-old is nearing a switch to Istanbul.

Yet Mikel, who moved to Stamford Bridge during Jose Mourinho's first spell as manager, insists he has made no such comments.
