Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has extended his stay with the Stamford Bridge club for a further season.
The French forward was originally out of contract at the end of the current campaign, with rumours suggesting that he was looking for a move away from West London.
However, he will now remain with the club during the 2020/21 season after the club activated an option in his contract.
Talking to the club’s official website, the former Arsenal man said: “I am delighted to continue my journey and adventure at Chelsea.
“I’m looking forward to wearing the Chelsea shirt again, especially in front of our fans at a full Stamford Bridge, whenever it is safe to do so.”
Meanwhile, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard said: “Since I have been back at Chelsea, Olivier has been brilliant as a professional and as a man in general.
“He has great qualities to help the squad both on and off the pitch, not only with his talent but with the example he sets every day and the experience he brings to our young squad. I am very pleased that will continue next season.”
Since arriving from Arsenal in 2018, Giroud has played 76 matches for the Blues, scoring 21 goals.
