Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel says 99% of the club's players want Guus Hiddink to become their permanent manager.
He said: "It is the choice of the owner, the club and the board. They will have to decide.
"But if you speak to the players, 98 or 99 per cent of them want him to stay so I mean, we are very happy, we are performing well and let’s hope this continues.
Meanwhile Chelsea playmaker Oscar has revealed he turned down a lucrative deal to join a Chinese Super League club, believed to be Jiangsu Suning, because he is not prepared to leave the Premier League.
Oscar is thought to have been subject to a £58m offer from Jiangsu but rejected their advances to remain at Stamford Bridge.
