Cahill pens new Chelsea contract

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has committed his future to the London club after putting pen to paper on a new four-year contract on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old has been rewarded with a new deal ahead of the busy festive period, with his previous contract due to expire at the end of next season.

Cahill has made 177 appearances and scored 15 times for the Blues after sealing a £7m switch from Bolton Wanderers in January 2012.

Commenting on his new deal, Cahill told the club's official website: "I'm really pleased to commit my future to Chelsea and it's great the club has put their faith in me.

"I have achieved a lot here and I hope I can keep on learning, helping the team and lifting trophies over the next four years."

During his time at Stamford Bridge, Cahill has won the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Europa League and Champions League.
