Hilario signs extension

Chelsea goalkeeper Henrique Hilario has signed a one-year extension to his current Chelsea contract, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2012/13 season.

The experience Portuguese stopper, who was part of our Double-winning squad in 2009/10, joined the club in 2006 from Nacional as back-up to Petr Cech and Carlo Cudicini. Signed by Jose Mourinho - a man who new Hilario from his Porto days - Hilario repaid the faith shown in him by the Special One as he made a number of fine saves in a 1-0 win over then-European Champions Barcelona at Stamford Bridge in October.

In 39 appearances for the West London side, Hilario has kept an impressive 18 clean sheets - and the Portuguese stopper has been an able deputy for Cech this season; putting in a particularly good display in the side's 2-1 win over West Brom at Stamford Bridge back in August.

The news means that young goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is likely to remain on loan at Atletico Madrid for a second season, as Hilario fights with Ross Turnbull for the right to deputise for Chelsea's number one.

You can discuss the news in Henrique's player profile.
