Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou claims he has signed a new four-year contract with the club.
The 23-year-old former Feyenoord ace's deal had been due to expire at the end of the current season.
With Chelsea banned from signing any new players until January 2011 the club have moved swiftly to tie down his services.
Kalou, who provides cover for first-choice pairing Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka, is reportedly committed to Stamford Bridge until 2014.
The 23-year-old was believed to be attracting interest from Roma and Arsenal, however, he is unlikely to depart after penning a new £60,000-a-week deal.
"Signing this deal with Chelsea has freed my mind to concentrate on football," Kalou told the People.
