London:

French striker Nicolas Anelka revealed on Sunday that he is hoping to sign a new Chelsea contract and wants to see out the rest of his career at Stamford Bridge.

The 30-year-old has played for seven clubs prior to his move to west London in January 2008 but now wants to settle at Chelsea, who are reported to be ready to offer him an improved contract.

Anelka, who has scored six goals for the Blues in all competitions this season, was quoted in the News of the World as saying: "I hope to sign a new contract soon. I am very happy at Chelsea. I have found a home.

"Ever since I left Real Madrid I wanted to find a big club again and I have with Chelsea.

"I feel I am playing the best football of my career and want to carry on playing my best days with Chelsea."

Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti admits he has been surprised at how well Anelka has fitted into his tactical plan.

The Italian, again quoted in the News of the World, said: "I am very happy for him, he is a big surprise. I knew him before I came here, I knew his qualities. But now it is different.

"I always thought he was an individual player but instead he plays very well for the team."
