Head coach Antonio Conte insists he is happy at Chelsea and does not know why rumours persist of a summer move to Inter Milan.

The 47-year-old former Juventus and Italy head coach has been linked with a move to Inter after impressing in his first season in England, which could yet end with a Premier League and FA Cup double.

Conte signed a three-year contract a year ago before taking up his position last July and expressed contentment in London and frustration about conjecture over his future from Italy. "I stay here. I'm very happy to stay here," Conte said ahead of this evening's visit to Bournemouth.

"This is the most important thing. I don't like when I listen to other persons talking about me. I don't know why, but I think it's normal to try to involve my name in this situation. I have two more years of contract with Chelsea. This is the truth."

This week also saw suggestions former Juventus and Italy midfielder Andrea Pirlo could join Conte's coaching team at Chelsea this summer.
