Ivory Coast international Salomon Kalou has extended his stay at German Bundesliga club Hertha Berlin by signing a new deal.
Kalou, whose previous contract with Hertha was due expire at the end of the season, joined the club at the beginning of the 2014/15 campaign.
On Wednesday, Hertha announced that the 31-year-old forward had signed an undisclosed contract extension with the high-flying German club.
"We're delighted that Salomon has decided to stay with us, in spite of other offers," said Hertha sporting director Michael Preetz on Bundesliga.com.
"He's a cornerstone of this team and will continue to help our development."
Kalou, who won the UEFA Champions League and Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) titles with Chelsea and Ivory Coast respectively, is pleased to have inked a new deal.
"I'm really happy in Berlin and still have a lot to achieve with Hertha. I want to help build on the progress the team has made in recent years," he said.
The former OSC Lillie and Feyenoord winger has netted six goals in 16 Bundesliga matches for Hertha this season.
