Victor Moses agreed to extend his stay at Chelsea after putting pen to paper on a contract extension that will keep him at Stamford Bridge until 2021.
The agreement, a two-year extension to his previous deal, comes after Moses revived his career at Chelsea under new manager Antonio Conte following a series of loan spells away from the club.
“I feel very excited,” he told the team’s website. “I’m delighted to be here for another few years now and to sign a new deal. Now it’s time to concentrate on the team and keep working hard to make sure we win games and try to win the Premier League this season.
“We’re having a great season, I’m enjoying my football and we have a good manager here that has given every single one of us confidence. I just want to keep on enjoying it and working hard for the team.”
Matt Law of The Telegraph reports that the new contract will see Moses’ weekly earnings rise from £45,000 to £75,000 a week.
The Nigeria international joined the Blues from Wigan Athletic in 2012, but was forced to spend three seasons out on loan with Liverpool, Stoke City, and West Ham before he was given an opportunity to play regularly this season.
Under Conte, Moses has thrived in his new role as a right wing-back ever since the Italian gaffer opted to deploy a 3-4-3 formation earlier this season.
Moses, 26, has scored 14 goals in 72 appearances in all competitions since joining the Blues.
