Petr Cech expects to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge as he prepares to enter into contract negotiations with Chelsea.
The 29-year-old has made over 300 appearances for the Blues since signing from Rennes in 2004 and has firmly established himself as one of the finest 'keepers in the world.
Cech, though, is coming to the end of his current deal with Chelsea and some reports have suggested he could leave west London in the not too distant future.
However, the Czech Republic international is committed to the cause at the Bridge, and wants to remain with the club for many more years to come.
"Yes, I think [I will sign a new deal] and we will not have a problem," Cech told the London Evening Standard.
"There are a lot of matches at this time of year so we agreed [before Christmas] that both sides would prepare for the negotiations and meet to resolve it when there is time for that.
"The last few weeks have been hectic and we [agreed] to meet after New Year's Day.
"I have been here for seven years and I have been more or less a regular starter, so I'm more than happy to stay.
"Ever since I was a kid, I wanted to be at a club who are among the best in the world.
"Chelsea are in the world's top competition, so I have no reason to leave. I would like to see myself staying here."
