Eden Hazard joked with a Chelsea fan that he will never leave the club, as talk of a new deal at Stamford Bridge continues to rumble on.
Hazard posed for photos and autographs at the NBA game between the Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia in London.
The Belgian went as far as telling one fan that he would never leave the club, which follows reports that the player himself has confirmed he and Thibaut Courtois are likely to sign new deals at the Bridge.

Hazard has continuously been linked with a big-money move to Real Madrid, but Chelsea are desperate to tie him down and secure his long-term future.
While promises made to fans can often be taken with a pinch of salt, it appears the Blues are making good steps towards securing two big deals.
The Chelsea attacker was spotted at the game with brother Kylian Hazard and fellow countryman Kevin De Bruyne, as well as teammates Thibaut Courtois, Marcos Alonso and Andreas Christensen.
