Cape Town - Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso has revealed that he is on the brink of signing a contract extension with the Premier League outfit.

The Spaniard's current deal only expires in 2021 but he is eager to put pen to paper on an extension after establishing himself as a regular starter under new manager Maurizio Sarri.

The 27-year-old has played every minute of the Blues' Premier League campaign thus far, helping them to an unbeaten start with six wins and two draws.

"I am very calm and very happy at Chelsea," Alonso told AS.

"The club must also be happy with me because, although I still have two years left on my contract, they have offered me an extension.

"We are talking about it and the talks to renew are already advanced. If everything goes well, I think I will renew before the end of this month - in the coming days."

Asked about the length of the extension, Alonso added: "My father takes care of that as he is the one who leads the negotiations. I am 27 years old, I still have two more years and I am going to extend my contract.

"What concerns me is to play as well as possible to win matches and titles with Chelsea and with the national team. I'm calm with my contract."
