DIDIER DROGBA last night agreed a new three-year contract at Chelsea worth over £100,000 a week.

SunSport understands that the striker’s representatives thrashed out terms with Blues, who expect to announce the deal in the next few days.

It is a big boost for boss Carlo Ancelotti less than two weeks before the new Premier League season kicks off.

Drogba’s new deal represents a remarkable turn-around in the Ivory Coast hitman’s fortunes at Stamford Bridge.

His future had come into question after he publicly criticised owner Roman Abramovich following Jose Mourinho’s exit.

The 30-year-old also fell out with boss Big Phil Scolari early last season.

And only last May his Blues career was hanging in the balance.

His attack on referee Tom Henning Ovrebo following the Champions League semi-final exit against Barcelona had seemingly put a new deal in danger.

But Drogba, whose four-match UEFA ban was cut to three on appeal, now looks set to finish his career at Chelsea.
