Hazard told Sky Sports: "There is no sign of a new contract for the moment. I am focused on the last month, and we will talk later.

"It's not in my mind now. I have two or three years left. I just want to finish the season well and we will see afterwards."

Hazard came off the bench to inspire the Blues to a 4-2 FA Cup semi-final win against Totenham at the weekend.

"When I talk to you at the national team, I don't know if I am a good captain, but I am a captain on the pitch.

"Off the pitch I don't like to talk a lot, in England I think the captain has to talk and make people ready for the games. I am not this kind of guy, I can talk with my feet but it's not my job to talk to everyone.

"I think JT does this, Gary [Cahill], [Cesar] Azpilicueta and even Cesc. They deserve to be captain."
