Nicolas Anelka signs contract extension with Chelsea
Anelka returned to London after being sent home from the World Cup
Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka has signed a one-year contract extension to keep him at Stamford Bridge until 2012.
"When I first came to Chelsea I wanted to stay much longer than I did in the past with other clubs," Anelka told the Premier League champions' website.
"There is no need to move anymore so I am very glad to sign a new contract."
Anelka, 31, recently caused controversy when he was sent home from the World Cup squad after verbally insulting France coach Raymond Domenech.
He clashed with Domenech during France's 2-0 defeat against Mexico and ordered home from South Africa after refusing to apologise despite being asked to do so by French Football Federation president Jean-Pierre Escalettes.
