Australian goalkeeper agrees a new one-year deal at Stamford Bridge

Mark Schwarzer is one of 10 players in the Barclays Premier League's '500 club'

Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has extended his stay at the club by signing a new one-year contract.

The 41-year-old moved to Stamford Bridge last summer and was back-up to No 1 Petr Cech as Chelsea finished third in the Barclays Premier League table.

He made four top-flight appearances while also making his UEFA Champions League debut, which included keeping a clean sheet in the semi-final, first leg against Atletico Madrid.

Schwarzer arrived in England in 1996 when he signed for Bradford City. He moved to Middlesbrough in the spring of 1997 where he made 332 top-flight appearances before joining Fulham in 2008.

He made 172 appearances for the Cottagers and during his time at Craven Cottage, he became the first man from overseas to join the exclusive club of players who have made 500 or more Barclays Premier League appearances.

Chelsea open their campaign with a vist to newly promoted Burnley on 16 August. To find out the club's pre-season schedule, click here >>
