Chelsea player, N’Golo Kante, has extended his deal at Stamford Bridge by five years, the club announced the new contract on Friday.
Recall that Kante signed from Leicester in 2016, and has always been on the field for the Maurizio Sarri’s side.
“N’Golo Kante has today extended his stay at Stamford Bridge by signing a new five-year contract,” Chelsea said on their official website.
Kante, said “I’m happy to extend my time with Chelsea. It has been two beautiful years and I wish for more to come.
“Since I came, I completely improved as a player, challenged myself and got some awards I never thought about.”
Kante, whose new deal will keep him at Chelsea until 2023, signed a five-year contract when he joined the club in 2016 for a fee reported to be around £30 million ($38.5 million).
Club director Marina Granovskaia said: “We are delighted N’Golo has signed a new contract and sees his long-term future with Chelsea. When he arrived, we knew we had signed a special player but he has astounded everybody with his tireless and unselfish displays.
“Off the pitch, he remains a dedicated professional and a humble human being despite the fact he is a world champion and a two-time Premier League winner. We now look forward to five more years with N’Golo at the heart of the Chelsea midfield.”
