Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has revealed he wants to sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge in the New Year.


The Czech Republic international also spoke of his happiness playing under Andre Villas-Boas and is keen to extend his stay.


Cech admitted he wanted to begin talks as soon as possible but the busy holiday period fixture list has meant he will have to wait.


“There are a lot of matches at this time of year so we are agreed that both sides will prepare for the negotiations and we will meet to resolve it when there is time for that,” he told Czech website


“The last few weeks have been hectic and over Christmas it will be even worse in that aspect. We will meet after New Year's Day.


“I have been here for eight years and I have been more or less a regular starter, so I'm more than happy.


“Ever since I was a kid I wanted to be at a club that is 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.”


Asked if he thought an agreement would be reached over an extension, Cech added: “Yes, I think so and we will not have a problem.”


Despite voicing his preference for staying at Stamford Bridge, Cech insisted he was not naïve enough to think he would never play for a team other than Chelsea.


“You never know, everything happens fast in the football life. You can sign a ten-year contract and then leave after three years,” he added.


“I'm 29 and believe there is still time for a possible change.


“It is difficult to leave the best league in the world and if you take a look around you will not see many teams of Chelsea's category that would be looking to sign a new goalkeeper.


“If I would like to try something new it would have to be a club of a similar level like Chelsea.”
