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.

Scotland Yard to examine Paris Metro footage

Scotland Yard says it will examine footage which shows Chelsea fans preventing a black man boarding a Paris Metro train.

We are aware of footage currently on the internet allegedly involving Chelsea fans in Paris. The Metropolitan Police Service takes offences such as this very seriously, no matter where they occur. We will examine the footage with a view to seeing if we can apply for football banning orders, preventing people from travelling from future matches. We will, of course, assist French authorities to identify the people involved and support them in any action they choose to take. At the same time we will be working closely with Chelsea Football Club.
