Midfielder N’Golo Kante has signed a new five-year contract with Chelsea running until 2023, the club confirmed on Friday.
The France international signed for Chelsea in the summer of 2016, following a debut season in the Premier League which ended with a title medal with Leicester City.
“I’m happy to extend my time with Chelsea, it has been two beautiful years and I wish for more to come,” Kante told Chelsea’s official website.
“Since I came, I completely improved as a player, challenged myself and got some awards I never thought about. I like the city, I like the club and I am happy to be here for more time.”
We have some great news…
