Thiago Silva joined Chelsea as a free agent during the summer following the expiration of his Paris Saint-Germain contract.

Silva joined Chelsea on a one year deal with the option of extending for another year, and there have been talks of an extension due to his fine form for Chelsea.

According to TMW via Tribal Football, Chelsea have made contact with the agent of Silva about a new deal.

Speaking ahead of the Tottenham game, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has talked about the rumours, and while he didn’t give a clear answer, his response was in the affirmative.

“I have seen the reports and there is an option in Thiago’s contract that we can look at as the season goes on,” Lampard said.

“With the way he is playing at the minute, we are very happy. That is the end of it really, I am surprised it has come out in that way.”
