Chelsea midfielder Charly Musonda has committed his long-term future to the club after signing a new contract with the Premier League champions, that will keep him at the Stamford Bridge until 2022.
Earlier this season, the Belgium international suggested that he was growing frustrated with life at the west London outfit, with manager Antonio Conte restricting the attacker to appearances in the EFL Cup.

Several reports had linked Musonda with a potential departure from the Blues, but the Premier League giants have announced that the 21-year-old has put pen to a paper on a contract extension until 2022.
He told the club’s official website: “I am very happy and very proud. I came here very young and am very happy to continue my journey here.
“I love this club so it’s a great moment for me and my family. Now I want to establish myself and progress into the team and stay here permanently.”
Musonda racked up four outings this term, but the youngster has spent just 26 minutes on the ground in the league.
