Obi Mikel Keeps Chelsea Waiting Over Contract ExtensionEnglish Premier League champions Chelsea will have to wait until the summer before finding out whether or not John Obi Mikel will prolong his stay at Stamford Bridge.

According to the defensive midfielder’s representative, The Blues have opened talks with the Super Eagles star over the extension of his contract , with his current set to run out in June 2017.

Mikel is enjoying a new lease of life under Chelsea’s interim manager, Guus Hiddink, with 11 appearances under his belt in the Premier League since the Dutchman took over from Jose Mourinho.

“Chelsea have approached him for an extension of his contract but he said after the season he’ll decide, ” Mikel’s rep told allnigeriasoccer.com.

“He has so many teams interested in him, almost three clubs in China want him. ”

The 28-year-old Mikel has played nonstop at the Londoners for the past ten years.
