Chelsea star confirms club stay by signing new four-year deal

Chelsea star Gary Cahill is set to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge after he signed a new four-year deal, BBC reports.

The 29-year-old joined from Bolton back in 2012 and has now earned himself a regular role alongside club captain John Terry in the heart of defence.

Cahill would have seen his previous deal expire at the end of next season before he decided to extend his stay for at least another four years.

He revealed that he is very happy at the club as he targets more trophies heading into the future and is very pleased to have extended his stay.

“I have achieved a lot here and I hope I can keep on learning, helping the team and lifting trophies over the next four years,” he said.

“I’m really pleased to commit my future to Chelsea and it’s great the club has put their faith in me.”

The England international has already won the League Cup, the FA Cup, the Premier League, the Champions League, as well as the Europa League over the course of his Chelsea career.

Despite the club’s previous successes, the current Premier League champions have struggled so far this season as they sit 14th on the table after registering seven losses from their first 14 fixtures.
