Silva then joined Chelsea on a one-year contract and has been impressive since he joined the Blues. Now Chelsea are offering another one-year extension.

It was gathered that Chelsea already included a clause which allows them to keep the player for another year and now they are ready to activate it.

He endured a shaky start as he wore the captain's armband on debut at West Brom but has since recovered to become a dominant figure in a much-improved Chelsea defence, scoring his first goal against Sheffield United.

Silva appears to be enjoying life at the heart of the Blues defence with Kurt Zouma his regular centre-back partner.

Meanwhile, Victor Moses' chances of joining Spartak Moscow on a permanent basis may have been jeopardised as the club's manager Domenico Tedesco casts doubt on the future of the player at the Otkrytie Arena.

The former Super Eagles winger joined the Russian side in the summer on a season-long loan deal in his sixth temporary move away from Stamford Bridge since his arrival from Wigan in 2012.
