Chelsea captain John Terry has committed his future to the club by signing a new one-year contract extension, the Stamford Bridge club have confirmed.
The centre-back, who turned 33 last December, has enjoyed one of his best seasons under Jose Mourinho – starting 34 Premier League games and forging an impressive partnership with Gary Cahill.
Terry had already stated his desire to stay at Chelsea and is delighted to have agreed a new deal.
"I'm delighted to have signed an extension to my contract with Chelsea taking me into my 20th year with the club," he said.
'I'd like to thank the fans and club for their continued support, and the Manager who was instrumental for me the last season.'
Meanwhile, Chelsea chief executive Ron Gourlay said he hopes Terry continue leading the squad as he has done this season.
"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."
The Chelsea legend has already played 621 games for the Blues, scoring 57 goals and winning the Champions League in 2012, as well as three Premier League titles and the Europa League.
Meanwhile, Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard's future at Chelsea remains uncertain – with both having seen their game time restricted this season.
