Hilario has signed a one-year extension to his current Chelsea contract.

The 35-year-old goalkeeper's contract would have run out this summer but he will now spend a sixth season at Stamford Bridge, having so far made 33 starts and four substitute appearances in his role as one of the keepers supporting Petr Cech.

Last season Hilario played one game, the Community Shield match against Manchester United at Wembley. In March 2010 he made his one appearance for the Portugal national side.
