The skipper commits himself to another year at Stamford Bridge.
There is good news for Chelsea fans as captain John Terry has signed a new contract with the club to keep him at Stamford Bridge until 2015.
The 33 year-old’s current deal was set to expire in the summer, but after a brilliant season with the Blues the club have decided to extend his stay.
Reports in the Mirror says that Terry is now the best paid defender in the Premier League, with the west Londoners convincing the centre-back to sign with the lure of money over longevity.
Originally the Englishman wanted a longer deal – something a host of foreign sides were prepared to offer the defender – but a compromise has now been met, as manager Jose Mourinho was desperate to keep him at the club.
Terry is the only member of the current first team squad that progressed through the club’s youth system and made his first senior appearance for the side back in 1998.
The former England skipper took the armband in west London following Marcel Desailly’s departure in 2004 and is considered one of their greatest ever players.
Along with Frank Lampard and Petr Cech, Terry has been a stalwart in the team throughout the Roman Abramovich era, winning three Premier League titles, five FA Cups, two League Cups, the Europa League and the Champions League to date.
It’s understood that the defensive ace is keen to win one more league title before he retires from the game.
