Chelsea defender Thiago Silva is close to extending his contract with the London club, reports the Daily Express. The 36-year-old Brazilian has agreed to stay in England for another season.
Last August, the footballer joined Chelsea as a free agent when he signed a contract until the end of the season with the option to extend his contract for another 12 months.
He played 21 games for Chelsea and scored 2 goals. However, he was injured in the thigh and missed several games of the team, but will return after the break of the national teams.
