Chelsea captain John Terry has set his sights on winning more trophies after signing a new deal at Stamford Bridge.

The 34-year-old, whose existing deal was set to expire at the end of this season, signed a one-year extension to his deal that means he will stay at the club until the end of the 2015-16 season.

Terry told Chelsea TV: "It's been a great couple of years for me. My form has been good and I've earned the contract, so I'm delighted to stay for another year. And hopefully there could be a few more years after this."

The central defender, who has retired from England duty, lifted the Capital One Cup with Chelsea on March 1 - his 13th major honour with the Blues - and hopes to add the Premier League title.

Chelsea entered the international break with a six-point advantage over nearest rivals Manchester City and with a game in hand.

"Hopefully there's many more (trophies)," Terry added. "That's a massive part of why I'm staying. I want to win trophies. I want to remain in the side, of course, and for me to get to 14 (trophies), 15, that's my target.

"We're very close at the moment. We still need to get over the line. It's going to be tough. The Hull game (a 3-2 win last weekend) showed how tough it's going to be.

"To get that big one at the end of the season would be fantastic. Then we can regroup and go again next year. I'm delighted to be here and hopefully there's going to be many more."

Terry has made 661 appearances for the Blues, scoring 63 goals and winning the Champions League, Europa League, three Premier League titles and five FA Cups.

Asked if he could close in on Ron Harris' club record of 795 appearances, he added: "I didn't think it was possible. I'm not sure now. It's still a long way.

"Lamps (Frank Lampard) is not here any more. It's down to me to hopefully stay fit, stay in the team and hopefully there will be more contracts to enable me to get closer."
