Former Liverpool sporting director Michael Edwards has rejected an offer from Chelsea.

Blues co-owner Todd Boehly has been on the trail of Edwards since he left Anfield at the end of last season as he searches for the best way to fill the void left by Marina Granovskaia's exit.

The Athletic reports, however, Chelsea will need to look elsewhere, as Edwards has turned down the potential opportunity.

Edwards, who joined the Reds in November 2011 following two years at Tottenham, informed Chelsea of his intention to take a break for up to a year to refresh and recharge, so stepping into such a role is not on his agenda for now.

They will now have to turn their attentions elsewhere and ideally get someone in before the transfer window closes.
