Now Fabrizio Romano has given an update on the HereWeGo Podcast, stating that Chelsea will assess the situation towards the back end of the season.

"The position from Chelsea is still the same," said Romano. "They say 'let him play, we are happy with Thiago; Thiago is happy with Chelsea, Lampard and the board. We will discuss in the following months'. 

"There's no rush or pressure. They will discuss it in March/April when they will start to take a decision. Chelsea are so happy with Thiago and they don't need to have any plans right now."

Silva recently revealed he is eyeing Premier League success with the Blues after the easy decision to join the club.
