Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic hopes he gets a new contract after turning form at Stamford Bridge.
His contract is due to expire this season after staying at the club since 2008.
Chelsea are not having a good season, but Ivanovic hopes he can change the fortunes and get a new contract out of it.
“I know I didn’t start the season well but I am back,” the 31-year-old told reporters.
“I hope the results will be good for the team. In that case I will be good as well. I hope and I think we will have time to speak about my future.
“Honestly, I am so happy [here].”
Chelsea face the high-flying Leicester City on Monday, and Ivanovic joked he may be forced into kicking their star striker Jamie Vardy to stop him.
“If this helps, yes,” Ivanovic said. “Some of the strikers don’t like [it] when you kick [them]. You kill their confidence.
“Vardy at the moment is running a lot and is making the space for other players as well. They are confident. I think it will be very hard.”
