The club have announced that veteran John Terry, whose deal was set to expire at the end of the season, will stay another season with the current Premier League leaders.
The defender expressed his delight at signing, telling the club website: “I’m delighted to have signed an extension to my contract with Chelsea.
“After adding another major trophy to my collection this month I hope myself, the players and manager can continue to bring success to our club.
“Playing for this great club makes me so proud. And, as always, I would like to thank the fans who have continually supported me.”
Blues boss Jose Mourinho also spoke about the deal, praising the skipper for his performances this season.
“This new contract is not to say “thank you very much”; it is because John continues to perform. He is a top defender,” he tactician said.
“I am happy that he completely deserves this new contract after a season where he has already played 40 matches.”
