Nicolas Anelka eyes new Chelsea contract


Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka has set his sights on a new contract with the Blues, having reached the 50-goal mark for the reigning Premier League champions.

The 31-year-old Frenchman reached his half-century against Spartak Moscow in midweek and is already thinking of a new deal at Stamford Bridge.

Anelka commented:"It is the first time I have scored that many for any club, but it is the first time I have spent more than two-and-a-half years at a club as well.

"It shows how happy I am at Chelsea. When I first signed here I knew had arrived at a big club and I wanted to stay as long as possible.

"I don't know what will happen in the future. After this season I have one more year on my current deal and I will see what will happen because you never know.

"But I am very happy here and I would be glad to sign for more years.

"I am just very satisfied to achieve two landmarks with Chelsea in goals scored and how long I have spent here, it has just been special to score goals for Chelsea."
