Chelsea to offer Sturridge new deal

Chelsea are set to reward Daniel Sturridge for his fine recent form with a new contract at Stamford Bridge, the Mirror reports.

The young striker has scored five goals so far this season and has been a consistent performer in attack while the likes of Fernando Torres, Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka have struggled.

His current deal is worth £60,000 a week and expires next summer, but Chelsea are reportedly set to offer him new terms of £90,000 a week until 2016.

Sturridge joined Chelsea from Manchester City in 2009 but struggled to make an impact initially. He was sent out on loan to Bolton in January, and managed to score eight goals in 12 league games.

This season, he has flourished under new boss Andre Villas-Boas, and could be in line to make his England debut against Spain on Saturday.
