With Chelsea facing a two-window transfer ban, the next month-and-a-half is all about deciding the futures of the players they already have. Today’s Blues transfer roundup includes confirmed new contracts for a trio of youngsters, as well as new deals in the pipeline for two senior players.
Chelsea have confirmed that three of the club’s youngsters have signed new contracts with the club. Juan Castillo, George McEachran and Tariq Uwakwe have all put pen to paper on new three-year deals with the Stamford Bridge outfit.
According to the Evening Standard, Chelsea have reached out to midfielder Mason Mount in regards to a new deal. The 20-year-old impressed whilst on loan at Derby last season, and Chelsea will step up negotiations after he returns from holiday in an attempt to tie him down to a contract until 2024.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek has agreed a long-term contract with the Blues according to the Daily Telegraph. The deal is expected to run for at least five years and may even be worth over £150,000-a-week.
