Via the Blues’ official website, it was revealed that the 18-year-old has signed a five-year extension.

The teenager, who can play in defence or midfield, has been part of the Chelsea fold since 2017 when he joined from Exeter City.

The Wales international has featured in the first team seven times so far, with only one appearance coming in the Premier League.

The West London outfit are notorious for not putting more trust in young talent, but this new deal indicates that Ampadu is wanted at Stamford Bridge.

As mentioned, plenty of Chelsea fans posted tweets of excitement following the news, while others used the announcement to demand a new contract for Eden Hazard.

The Belgian’s current deal does not expire until the summer of 2020, but as he is constantly linked with moves elsewhere, it seems that some Chelsea fans want that sign of commitment.
