Eden Hazard told a fan that he will 'never leave Chelsea' during Thursday night's NBA London game between Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers.

The 27-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent months, but the man himself has responded to rumours with the answer every Chelsea fan wanted to hear.

As you can see in the footage below, a fan told Hazard to not leave Stamford Bridge and the Belgian responded perfectly.

These revelations come just weeks after Hazard's father revealed that the Belgian winger turned down a contract extension at Chelsea.

Hazard has arguably been the Blues' best player since his arrival in the Premier League five years ago, while also establishing himself as probably the most influential player in the English top flight during the same period.

Chelsea - what would've been without the millions and millions:

However, the Belgian apparently didn't see his long term future in London, with a long rumoured move to Real Madrid potentially closer than a lot of Blues fans would care for.

But his actions at the NBA, along with an exclusive from The Mirror suggest he will remain with Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.

In the interview Hazard confirms that he will sign a new deal at Chelsea and commit his future to the club.

When asked if he will sign a contract at the Blues, he responded "Yes," then revealed that goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois will also pen a new deal.

Thought on Hazard's decision to stay at Stamford Bridge with teammate Thibaut Courtois?
