Russia coach Guus Hiddink has again rejected talk of him becoming the next manager of Chelsea after this summer's European Championship finals. The Dutchman has agreed a contract extension to remain with Russia until 2010, but has yet to formally sign the deal, raising questions over his long-term future. However, Hiddink told Radio Five Live's Sportsweek: "Everyone is speculating because it is not signed officially, but there is an agreement between the president of the Russian Federation and me to continue. "The only contact I have had with Chelsea has been with Roman Abramovich about the development of Russian football. "I have not spoken to Chelsea regarding the vacant job, but every now and then I have contact with Abramovich. That is my only contact."
