Nigeria international Victor Moses has penned a two year extension to his contract at Premier League table toppers Chelsea.
Moses, who was converted this season from winger to right wing-back by coach Antonio Conte in a 3-4-3 formation, has been a revelation in that position and now committed to staying at Stamford Bridge until 2021. His original contract was due to expire in 2019.
The Nigerian had loan spells at Liverpool, Stoke and West Ham before becoming a regular this season under Conte. He said after inking the new deal, reportedly worth £100,000 a week: “I feel very excited. I’m enjoying my football and we have a good manager here that has given every single one of us confidence.”
Technical Director Michael Emenalo, also a Nigerian, said Moses “will be a big part of our future success”. The 26 year old has played 72 times for Chelsea, scoring 14 goals. He has nine goals in 27 appearances for “Nigeria’s Super Eagles”.
