Cech close to new Chelsea deal

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is set to sign a two-year contract extension in the next few days.

The Czech Republic international has been instrumental in Chelsea's success since moving to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2004, helping the club to their first league title for 50 years and the Carling Cup last season.

He is now rated among the best goalkeepers in the world and Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho is anxious that the 23-year-old commits his long-term future to the club.

The player's current contract runs to 2008 but Cech has now been offered a new deal that will tie him to the club for a further two years and earn him £5million over five years.

His agent Pavel Zika confirmed: 'Talks are in progress and they are well on the way.'

Chelsea have also received a further boost with versatile Cameroon star Geremi making it clear he is happy at the club even though he is not a regular in Mourinho's side.

The Cameroon international had forced his way into the side before leaving to link up with his country in the African Nations Cup in Egypt.

'So far, it's been going well (at Chelsea),' Geremi said. 'The last few games, I've been playing regularly which is good for me. We've been winning, which is also good for the team. I'm happy.

'As a manager, I think he (Jose Mourinho) proves a lot, proves he is one of the biggest in the world. As a person, he's a nice person, but a difficult person in his job.

'When he says something, I think he loves it when you respect it. He doesn't like it when you don't respect when he's working, which is good for the team.'

However, even though Chelsea are currently 14 points clear at the top of the Barclays Premiership, Geremi does not believe they can take winning their second successive title for granted.

'You don't win the title mathematically yet,' he insisted. 'We cannot say we've won the title so we're going to continue with the same ambition.'

Chelsea midfielder Joe Keenan has been handed a trial by struggling Dutch outfit Willem II after failing to make the grade at Stamford Bridge. Keenan is in the last year of his current Chelsea deal and is unlikely to be offered a new one.
