Ramires agrees new five-year deal with Chelsea

London: Brazil midfielder Ramires signed a new five-year deal with Chelsea on Monday that will keep him at Stamford Bridge until 2017.

"I am very happy with the support I have playing for this club," he told the London team`s website (www.chelseafc.com).

Ramires, who originally signed a four-year deal when he joined from Benfica in August 2010, made his 50th Premier League appearance in the 1-0 defeat at West Bromwich Albion at the weekend.

Saturday`s defeat proved the last game for manager Andre Villas-Boas who was sacked a day later. His number two Roberto Di Matteo has been put in charge of fifth-placed Chelsea until the end of the season.
