John Obi Mikel has signed a new five-year contract at Chelsea, the club have announced.

The 25-year-old midfielder committed his future to the European champions until 2017 - something that would see him complete 11 years at Stamford Bridge.

Mikel, who joined Chelsea in the summer of 2006 after controversially pulling out of a move to Manchester United, told the club's official website, www.chelseafc.com: "Chelsea seems like my home now because I have been here for over six years and I enjoy my time here."
