John Terry extends Chelsea stay
Chelsea captain John Terry has signed a one-year contract extension at Stamford Bridge
Terry's previous terms were due to expire in the summer and it was uncertain whether the 33-year-old would prolong his stay in West London.
However, on Tuesday the club confirmed confirmed an agreement has been reached with the former England skipper.
Terry has made a total of 621 starts for the Blues in all competitions, and this campaign he has impressed in the heart of Jose Mourinho's defence.
Chelsea conceded the least goals in the Premier League -- 27 in 38 matches -- as Terry and teammate Gary Cahill formed a solid partnership.
Experienced duo Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard's current deals are also due to expire in the summer, and Mourinho recently hinted they may join Terry in staying.
Reacting to signing his new contract, Terry told the club's official website: "I'm delighted to have signed an extension to my contract with Chelsea taking me into my 20th year with the club.
"I'd like to thank the fans and club for their continued support, and the Manager who was instrumental for me the last season."
Chief executive Ron Gourlay added: "We are very pleased John, who is an undoubted Chelsea legend, will continue to lead the team next season, as he has done for so many years with unrivalled achievement.
"Both Chelsea FC and John have been clear throughout that we wanted his outstanding career at the club to continue, and it is important the matter has been concluded so soon after the end of the season, allowing us to look forward to and plan for 2014-15."
