Victor Moses has signed a new contract worth £75,000-a-week with Chelsea Football Club.
The contract extension means Moses will remain at Chelsea until 2021. He was previously on a £45,000-a-week salary.
Moses has become an important part of Antonio Conte’s team this season.
Moses has been playing at right wing-back since Conte’s made the switch to a 3-4-3 formation this season, turning in some excellent performances over the course of the season.
“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.” Moses was quoted as saying on Chelsea’s official website.
Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo added, “We are extremely pleased Victor has chosen to extend his contract with us. He is enjoying an excellent season and, under Antonio’s leadership, has proved to be an important member of the squad.
“This new contract is testament to Victor’s hard work and dedication to succeed at Chelsea and we believe he will be a big part of our future success.”
Moses joined Chelsea from Wigan Athletic in the summer of 2012 under Roberto Di Matteo and his successor, Rafa Benitez, making 44 appearances in all competitions and scoring 10 goals.
He was then sent on loan for three consecutive seasons by Jose Mourinho, to Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United who Chelsea meet on Monday.
“I had a great time there last season, it’s a nice memory but now I’m a Chelsea player and I’m enjoying my football,”
“I can’t wait to go to the London Stadium and, hopefully, we’ll get three points.” said Moses while speaking about the West Ham fixture.
