Chelsea star John Obi Mikel has signed a five-year contract to stay at Stamford Bridge until 2017.
The Nigerian anchor man, 25, has been a mainstay of the Blues midfield since controversially shunning rivals Manchester United to join back in 2006.
Mikel has since won four FA Cups, one Premier League, one Carling Cup and a Champions League with the club.
He said: "Chelsea seems like my home now because I have been here for over six years and I enjoy my time here. 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," he added. "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."
