Portuguese goalkeeper Henrique Hilario has signed a one-year contract at Chelsea to take his stay at Stamford Bridge into a seventh season.

The 37-year-old appeared to be on his way out of the club after he was named on Chelsea's list of released players at the end of last season, but he was part of the 25-man squad that travelled to the United States for the club's current pre-season tour.

"It feels really good to sign a new contract for another year at the club, I'm very proud," said Hilario, who joined the Blues during Jose Mourinho's first reign in 2007.

"I'm really pleased to be part of this great squad and I'm looking forward to working once again with Jose Mourinho."

The goalkeeper, who has made 39 appearances - keeping 18 clean sheets - over six years, is one of four goalkeepers in Mourinho's squad, alongside number one Petr Cech, Mark Schwarzer and Jamal Blackman.
