Chelsea have confidence that they will be able to reach an agreement over a new deal for Thiago Silva soon, according to The Athletic.

The Blues have opened talks with the Brazilian centre-back over a new deal in a bid to keep him for at least another 12 months.

Silva is understood to be open to a new deal, although he wants the situation resolved as soon as possible.

He remains one of the most consistent players in Graham Potter's team despite turning 38 years old last September.

Since joining Chelsea in 2020, Silva has been a staple in the team under three different managers, winning the Champions League for the first time in his career in 2021.
