LONDON (AP):Chelsea defender David Luiz has signed a new five-year deal with the European champions.

The Brazil international's contract was signed after yesterday's 1-0 victory over Stoke despite having almost four years remaining on his existing deal.

The 25-year-old Luiz joined Chelsea from Benfica in January last year, and says "I look forward to winning more trophies here." There were preseason reports that several clubs both in England and on the continent were interested in the Brazilian's signature.
