Mikel Obi Puts Pen To Paper On New Chelsea Contract

Nigerian international and Chelsea defensive midfielder, John Obi Mikel has signed a new five-year contract with Chelsea, thereby committing his future to the English Premier League club until 2017.

Mikel who has gone on to make 261 appearances for Chelsea, winning four FA Cup medals, one Premier League title and the Champions League last season, described Stamford Bridge as his ‘home’, and said he feels he is just hitting his ‘peak’ as he aims to secure more silverware with the club in the coming years.

“Chelsea seems like my home now because I have been here for over six years and I enjoy my time here,” he told the club’s official website.

“I come into the training ground every day to work and I value my time there. I am happy and want to keep going and win trophies for this club.

“I have basically won everything with Chelsea and those years have been really special for me, winning trophies with big names like Didier Drogba, John Terry and Frank Lampard, who have had very long Chelsea careers.

“Last season to win the Champions League was even more special and I hope these next five years will bring even more success and I can win trophies with the new players we have here.

“Being 25 I think I am now hitting my peak but as a player you want to improve every day and there is still room for that. I want to learn from the players and the manager and I just want to keep going.”
