Chelsea are ready to offer defender Gary Cahill a new four-year deal to remain at Stamford Bridge until 2017, reports The Mirror

The Blues centre-back has been in fine form alongside John Terry in this campaign and now looks set to be rewarded for his fine displays. 

Cahill, who joined the Blues from Bolton in a deal worth £7 million two years ago has kept the likes of David Luiz out of the side this season. 

The England international could now renew his current deal despite still having three years remaining on his current contract at Stamford Bridge.

Cahill looks set to play a key part in Chelsea's second half of the season as they look to push for three major trophies. 

Jose Mourinho's side remain in the hunt for the Premier League and Champions League, whilst beginning their FA Cup campaign today as they take on Championship outfit Derby County.
