LONDON (AP) - Chelsea captain John Terry has signed a one-year contract extension with the Premier League club.

The 33-year-old defender has spent his entire career at Chelsea, scoring 57 goals in 621 appearances. He regained his regular starting place under Jose Mourinho in the season that ended at the weekend without Chelsea winning a trophy.

Terry thanked the fans and club ''for their continued support, and the manager who was instrumental for me the last season.''

Chief Executive Ron Gourlay confirmed that Terry would ''continue to lead the team next season, as he has done for so many years with unrivalled achievement.''
