Ashley Cole has agreed a one-year contract extension at Chelsea.
The defender, whose contract expired at the end of the season, will now remain at Stamford Bridge until the completion of the 2013-14 season.
He said: "I have been able to fulfil nearly all my ambitions at Chelsea. I have won the Champions League, the League, I have won FA Cups here but of course you don't want to stop winning trophies and being at a big club, you are always fighting to win a trophy.
"Being here for seven years and being at Arsenal before that playing for trophies, you never lose that hunger. I wanted to stay at Chelsea because we are always fighting and challenging for trophies. That desire and the will to want to win things have not gone."
