Kalou offered fresh terms by Chelsea
Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has revealed the club have offered Salomon Kalou a new contract.
Along with Chelsea team-mates Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka, Kalou's current terms will expire next summer, and Villas-Boas is keen to prolong the trio's stay at Stamford Bridge.
Kalou, 26, signed for the Blues from Feyenoord in 2006 for £8 million and has since made 146 Premier League appearances for the club, scoring 35 goals.
But the Ivory Coast international has been a substitute in 57 of those games, with the forward starting just twice in the league under Villas-Boas so far this season.
However, Villas-Boas is keen to tie down Kalou on extended terms, telling the club's official website: "Kalou was offered a contract and hopefully we will continue talks. In January these players are available to discuss their future. We'll continue talks until we reach an agreement or not.
"The fact that they are emotionally tied to this club - like Nico [Anelka] - too, means we can count on them while they are negotiating. Their loyalty to the club will never be in question."
