Thiago Silva’s impressive start convinces Chelsea to extend the Brazilian’s contract for a second season.
Negotiations before Silva’s arrival over the summer saw Chelsea include the option to extend the central defender’s 12-month deal by a further year if he impressed.
Official discussions with the player are not expected to being until the new year, but Frank Lampard believes the 36-year old has been a key part of Chelsea’s impressive start to the season, and is keen to keep him at Stamford Bridge for a second campaign.
Silva joined Chelsea as a free player over the summer after spending the last eight seasons at Paris Saint-Germain, following a spell at AC Milan.
