London:Florent Malouda has signed a new deal to stay with Chelsea for three more seasons.
The French winger, who had a year left on his existing contract, has agreed to stay at Stamford Bridge until the summer of 2012 and said on Tuesday he was looking forward to playing under new manager Carlo Ancelotti.
"I was really happy when I heard it was Carlo Ancelotti because I have a lot of respect for him," Malouda said about the former AC Milan coach. "At my former club Lyon I played many times against Milan. For me it is a really good choice and I believe in him."
