John Terry signs with Chelsea for 5 more years

 The Chelsea captain John Terry has signed with the Blues for five more years, ending all speculations of a departure.

John Terry signs with Chelsea for 5 more years The captain of Chelsea and England has officially signed a five-year contract with the club, effectively ending all rumours over his future. The original contract of Terry with Chelsea FC is scheduled to expire in two years, but it is now replaced by the new five-year deal, which means that John Terry will stay with the Blues until 2012.

 John Terry commented on the deal:

 "I'm really happy this has now been concluded. There has been a lot of speculation but these things take time and I never had doubts that I wanted to stay at Chelsea and that the club wanted me to stay. I hope the fans can see that we are all trying to build something special here, both for now and for the future, and I want to be a part of that. I have been at Chelsea all my career and have the privilege of being captain. Now it's time to look forward to the new season which we are all very confident about."

 John Terry, who has 39 England caps, made his Stamford Bridge debut against Aston Villa in 1998 and Marcel Desailly passed on the captaincy to him during the 2004-05 season. Throughout his career, the 26-year-old defender has played with Chelsea only, and rumours about his future departure from Stamford Bridge came as a shock to many Blues fans.

 The U.K. licensed online betting website Bet 365 (official website) is offering 6/4 on Chelsea winning the 07/08 Barclays Premiership and 7/2 on winning the FA Cup.
