NEW DEAL! Victor Moses pens two-year Chelsea contract extension

Chelsea winger Victor Moses has signed a two-year contract extension, the Premier League leaders have announced.

The 26-year-old, who spent last season on loan at West Ham, has established himself as a regular under new Blues boss Antonio Conte in a wing-back position.

On signing the deal, Moses – who has also spent time on loan at Liverpool and Stoke since joining Chelsea from Wigan in 2012 – said: “I feel very excited.

“I am delighted to be here for another few years now and to sign a new deal.

“Now it is 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.”

Nigeria international Moses, who has agreed to extend his stay until 2021, believes Italian coach Conte has helped get the best out of his game.

“We are having a great season, I am enjoying my football and we have a good manager here that has given every single one of us confidence,” Moses added.

“I just want to keep on enjoying it and working hard for the team.”

Moses has started every Premier League match since October 1, when Conte switched to a 3-4-3 formation for the first time in the match against Hull.

Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo is confident Moses has a big part to play at the west London club.

“Victor is enjoying an excellent season and, under Antonio’s leadership, has proved to be an important member of the squad,” Emenalo said.

“This new contract is testament to Victor’s hard work and dedication to succeed at Chelsea and we believe he will be a big part of our future success.”
