Olivier Giroud and Willy Caballero have both signed contract extensions at Chelsea.

Giroud's existing deal had been due to expire at the end of the current delayed campaign, and he had been linked with a possible move to Lazio in Serie A.

The 33-year-old, who scored Chelsea's last goal prior to the season's suspension in the 4-0 win over Everton in March, said he was delighted to confirm his future.

Giroud said:

"I can't wait to get back to playing competitive football with my teammates.

"I'm looking forward to wearing the Chelsea shirt again, especially in front of our fans at a full Stamford Bridge whenever it is safe to do so."

Chelsea also exercised the option to extend Willy Caballero's contract by a further year until the end of the 2020-21 season.

Caballero said to the club's official site:

"I'm very happy to make this announcement."

Chelsea players returned to their Cobham base on Tuesday, after Premier League clubs voted unanimously on a return to training.

However, midfielder N'Golo Kante missed training on Wednesday at the discretion of both the club and manager Frank Lampard.

Kante was excused from training after expressing concerns over the safety of a return to action.

It's unclear when the French international will train again.
