JOHN TERRY has signed a one-year contract extension with Chelsea.

The 33-year-old club captain had an impressive season after being reinvigorated by the return of Jose Mourinho as manager.

Terry graduated from Chelsea's academy and made his first-team debut in 1998; next season will be his 17th in the senior side.
