Chelsea star David Luiz has admitted hes no closer to signing a new deal at the club with the Blues unwilling to offer him more than a one-year deal.

The Brazilian is out of contract at the end of the season but is happy to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge after rediscovering his form under Maurizio Sarri.

However, Luiz is unhappy with Chelseas policy of only issuing one-year extensions to players over 30 and wants a contract longer in length if hes to pen a new deal.

Sarri is keen for the club to re-think their policy as he wants to keep Luiz, as well as Cesc Fabregas who is also entering the final six months of his deal.

We are still talking, lets see. Lets see what the future brings, said Luiz.

I love this club, everybody knows I want to stay.

Luiz was speaking after his Man of the Match display in Chelseas 2-0 win against Manchester City on Saturday.

The 31-year-old scored Chelseas second in the win to end Citys long unbeaten run and to blow open the title race.
