Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has signed a new 4-year contract to extend his stay at the club until 2019. The defender signed the deal just 17 days before he turns 30-years of age. With the recent club policy at Chelsea, no player is given a long-term contract therefore Cahill and Chelsea have struck the deal at the right moment.

Having signed his new contract, Cahil spoke with ChelseaFC.com where he said: “I’m really pleased to commit my future to Chelsea and it’s great the club has put their faith in me,” he told the club’s official website, www.chelseafc.com. “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.”

Cahill is seen as the next defensive leader at Chelsea after John Terry’s form has been on a slide this season. The club captain has been dropped for crucial games with Spurs game being the real example where he was dropped with Harry Kane’s fear in mind. It is almost certain that Terry will leave the clun next season and the entire responsibility will come on Cahill to be the new leader for Jose Mourinho in coming seasons.
