Today on the Chelsea Website its has been confirmed that Mikel has signed a new 5 year deal with the club. He said:

"It was easy to commit because I am happy here and when the opportunity came it was good to sign after speaking to the club.

My future with the new manager will be bright, and I think we have a good working relationship already. All the managers I have played for here have their own type of systems they want us to play , and whoever comes in will want to change little bits and pieces.

There is not much to change but they all bring in different views, and the new manager wants us to play in a certain formation which we need to get used to before the season starts. Its been hard work getting back to fitness but we all want to be sharp for the start of the new season, training is hard work but we have to do it.

The new formation doesn't make too much difference for me in defensive midfield, but perhaps its a little harder as i have to cover more ground for the team but i feel I am up to the task and i am sure i can do it"

For me, this is great news. He has been a really consistant performer for Chelsea and his positional sense has improved dramatically. He is very composed on the ball, there is still a slight tendancy to jump into a tackle and lose his head. If he can get that out of his game then he will continue to be a vital part of our side in years to come!
