Didier Drogba will begin his second spell at Chelsea next season after agreeing a one-year deal with Jose Mourinho's side.
The 36-year-old striker and Blues favourite returns to Stamford Bridge after leaving in 2012 for stints at Shanghai Shenhua and Galatasaray.
"It was an easy decision - I couldn't turn down the opportunity to work with Jose again," Drogba said.
"Everyone knows the special relationship I have with this club and it has always felt like home to me."
