Ruben Loftus-Cheek Pens New Contract at Chelsea

Published

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has signed a new five-year contract at Chelsea worth £120,000-a-week.

The 23-year-old is a product of a productive academy system at Stamford Bridge.

He was denied the regular opportunities he craved upon stepping up into the senior ranks, leading to him spending 2017-18 on loan at Crystal Palace.

Maurizio Sarri was, however, to show plenty of faith in him and 40 appearances were taken in across all competitions last season, while recording a personal-best 10 goals.

Loftus-Cheek saw his campaign end on a low as he suffered an unfortunate Achilles injury which kept him out of a Europa League final win and the Nations League finals with England.

He is, however, held in high regard by club and country and is delighted to have committed to fresh terms, telling Chelsea’s official website: “I’m really happy and pleased that I get to stay here for another five years.”
