The Nigerian star is ready to commit his future to the Blues...
Nigeria star John Obi Mikel is ready to end speculation with a move away from Chelsea by signing a new contract, his agent has revealed.

The 22-year-old was thought to be a target for former Stamford Bridge boss Jose Mourinho, and with only one year left on his contract would have been available for a transfer in just 12 months time.

However any speculation with a move away from Stamford Bridge will be ended when Mikel signs a new five-year deal this week.

"He will sign the deal early this week," his agent, John Shittu told Kick Off Nigeria.

Shittu claimed the lucrative new contract would bring Mikel to somewhere near the top of the wage structure at Chelsea, saying, "It is a very good deal for him and would put him at par with some of the top earners in the club.

"Some of the club officials were away, but they were expected back last weekend. As soon as everybody is in, we will sign the new contract."
