John Terry 'delighted' to sign new contract at Chelsea

John Terry has signed a new contract at Chelsea, extending his stay until the end of the 2015/16 campaign.

I'm delighted to have signed an extension to my contract with Chelsea.

After adding another major trophy to my collection this month I hope myself, the players and manager can continue to bring success to our club.

Playing for this great club makes me so proud. And as always I would like to thank the fans who have continually supported me.

This new contract is not to say “thank you very much”; it is because John continues to perform. He is a top defender. I am happy that he completely deserves this new contract after a season where he has already played 40 matches.

Kevin Pietersen signs contract to return to Surrey

Kevin Pietersen has signed a contract to return to Surrey this summer. The move gives the record-breaking batsman the opportunity to press for an England recall, after being sacked in February 2014 following the Ashes whitewash defeat in Australia.

Pietersen cleared the way for a return to The Oval by agreeing a release from the majority of his Indian Premier League contract with Sunrisers Hyderabad - which clashed with the start of the English domestic season - and he will be available for Surrey's first LV= County Championship match against Glamorgan in Cardiff on April 19.

A 15-year-old boy has been arrested by police investigating an alleged racist tweet aimed at Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck. The teenager was held and questioned on suspicion of racial abuse following the posting of a message on Twitter after Welbeck scored the winner to knock his former club Manchester United out of the FA Cup on March 9.

A 15-year-old male from the Salisbury area was arrested on the evening of March 12 on suspicion of racial abuse. He has been released on police bail until April 13. The investigation is ongoing.
