Aussie goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has signed a new one-year deal with Chelsea.

The former Australia international, 41, headed to Stamford Bridge last summer on a free transfer from west London neighbours Fulham to offer back-up to Petr Cech.

He made 12 starts and a single substitute appearance - in the Champions League semi-final first leg against Atletico Madrid.

Earlier this week, Chelsea confirmed the departure of Portuguese goalkeeper Hilario at the end of his contract.

Defender Ashley Cole also leaves Chelsea this summer, along with England midfielder Frank Lampard.
