Victor Moses Signs New Contract At Chelsea
Victor Moses has been rewarded for his Chelsea revival with a new two-year contract extension.
The Blues have tied down Moses until 2021 after he put pen to paper today.
Wing-back Victor Moses has been one of the stars and surprises of the Blues’ season and played a key part in the league leaders’ title charge.
Moses, a £9m signing from Wigan in 2012, appeared to be way down the Stamford Bridge pecking order after being loaned out for three seasons running before Antonio Conte’s arrival.
But the versatile Nigerian impressed Conte in pre-season to force his way back into the Blues’ plans and has become a regular since Chelsea switched to a 3-4-3 formation.
Moses has made the right-wing-back spot his own and started every league game since being handed his first league start by Conte in the 2-0 win at Hull in October.
Moses’s impact and growing importance to Chelsea is underlined by the fact his terms have been upgraded just 18 months after he signed his previous new deal.
He signed a four-year, £45,000 a week deal in September 2015 but the Blues have been quick to offer him another improved deal to reflect his new status as a first-choice pick for Conte.
Moses said: “I feel very excited. 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.”
