Chelsea and England defender Gary Cahill has penned a new four-year contract with the Jose Mourinho led Stamford Bridge side.
The 29-year-old centre-half whose previous deal was due to expire at the end of next season has made 177 Blues appearances since arriving from Bolton for about £7m in January 2012.
A club statement on the Blues’ official website reads: “Chelsea Football Club is delighted to announce Gary Cahill has signed a new four-year contract, keeping him at Stamford Bridge until 2019.”
The 29-year-old has become a key figure in the team since arriving from Bolton Wanderers in early 2012, lifting every major club honour in that time.
Cahill was part of the squad which won the Champions League and FA Cup during his first few months as a Chelsea player, adding the Europa League to his collection a year later.
Last season he lifted the Capital One Cup and Premier League trophies and was part of the division’s meanest defence for the second successive season. He was also voted into the Premier League PFA Team of the Year in both 2013/14 and 2014/15.
