Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink has stated Cahill is not eager to leave the club.
Cahill has been relegated to the bench, with Kurt Zouma starting in his stead.
And even though Matt Miazga is on his way into the club, Cahill is staying put.
“He is of big value and I will prove that in the upcoming time,” the caretaker manager said on Friday.
“He was very open and clear that he loves to stay here. There was no single space left by him to say ‘I’m not happy’.
“He is happy here but not playing creates frustration, which is normal. I like his attitude and that will always be rewarded.
“There is no hint from his side that he wants to leave the club.
“He is very happy and he is of value and as far as I’m concerned I will have him in the coming months and the club will have him in upcoming years.
“Of course players who aren’t playing frequently, they must get frustrated. I spoke to him days ago about the situation, which I always like to do with key players.
“Recently he signed a new contract, which is a signal he loves the club and likes to be here. Sometimes players don’t play frequently but everyone will get their minutes to play.”
