British media estimated the deal as worth £41 million to the centre-back, or £160,000 a week, making him the highest-paid player in the country.
Chelsea is delighted to confirm that John Terry has signed a new five-year contract that keeps him at the club until the end of the 2013-14 season," the club said on their website.
Terry, who made his Chelsea debut in a League Cup match in 1998, has played more than 400 matches for the club and led them to the Premier League title in 2005 and 2006.

Manchester City have signed Brazilian defender Sylvinho on a one-year contract and are closing in on completing a deal for Everton defender Joleon Lescott
Sylvinho, who played in the Champions League final for Barcelona last season before being released, returns to the Premier League after two seasons with Arsenal from 1999 to 2001.Sylvinho has a wealth of experience at the very top level, having represented Brazil and played for some of the very top clubs in Europe.
Manchester City can confirm that agreement has been reached with Everton for the transfer of Joleon Lescott, City said on their website. "The move is subject to the player agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.Everton having rejected two previous offers - the first about £18 million - Everton are reported to have accepted £24 million from City for Lescott.
Liverpool suffered their second defeat of their opening three Premier League games of the season by losing 3-1 to Aston Villa at Anfield.
Brazilian midfielder Lucas gave the visitors a surprise lead on 33 minutes when he guided Young's free-kick past the wrong-footed Pepe Reina into his own net.
Things got worse for Liverpool when - as manager Rafael Benitez was complaining to the fourth official about the length of added time at the end of the half - defender Davies glanced Nicky Shorey's corner past Reina.
Torres lashed Emiliano Insua's cross into the roof of the net on 71 minutes, but that fillip for the home crowd did not last long before Gerrard slid in and upended Nigel Reo-Coker inside the Liverpool box with a desperate lunge.
