Petr Cech has voiced his desire to stay at Chelsea after revealing that he is set to begin discussions with the west Londoners over a new deal to keep him at Stamford Bridge.

The 27-year-old Czech goalkeeper, who has been the Blues’ first choice between the posts since joining Chelsea from Rennes in 2004 told the London Evening Standard: “Yes, I think [I will sign a new deal] and we will not have a problem.

“There are a lot of matches at this time of year so we agreed [before Christmas] that both sides would prepare for the negotiations and meet to resolve it when there is time for that. The last few weeks have been hectic and we [agreed] to meet after New Year’s Day.

“I have been here for seven years and I have been more or less a regular starter, so I’m more than happy to stay. Ever since I was a kid, I wanted to be at a club who are 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 here.”
