London, Sep.1 (ANI): Chelsea and England captain John Terry has signed a new five-year contract that will keep him at Stamford Bridge until 2014.

The contract is worth 150,000-pounds-a-week, making him the best-paid player at the club and elevating him into the elite earners in world football, reports The Telegraph.

The England captain will earn close to 39 million pounds over the course of the contract and will in all likelihood see the England defender see out his career at the club he joined as a 14-year-old.

A club statement read: "Chelsea are delighted to confirm that John Terry has signed a new five-year contract that keeps him at the club until the end of the 2013-14 season.

This reaffirms both John's and Chelsea's long-stated desire for him to be at Stamford Bridge for the rest of his playing career."

Terry's salary will be the highest yet paid to an English footballer and will make him the second-best paid player in the Premier League behind Robinho, of Manchester City.

Terry has made 276 appearances in 12 seasons at Stamford Bridge and has won 54 England caps since 2003. (ANI)
