“When he arrived, we knew we had signed a special player but he has astounded everybody with his tireless and unselfish displays.”
Chelsea midfielder, N’Golo Kante has signed a new five-year contract at Stamford Bridge.
The deal is worth £290,000 per week.
“I’m happy to extend my time with Chelsea, it has been two beautiful years and I wish for more to come,” Kante told the club’s official website.
“Since I came, I completely improved as a player, challenged myself and got some awards I never thought about. I like the city, I like the club and I am happy to be here for more time.”
Also speaking, the Club director, Marina Granovskaia said: “We are delighted N’Golo has signed a new contract and sees his long-term future with Chelsea.
“When he arrived, we knew we had signed a special player but he has astounded everybody with his tireless and unselfish displays.
“Off the pitch, he remains a dedicated professional and a humble human being despite the fact he is a world champion and a two-time Premier League winner.
“We now look forward to five more years with N’Golo at the heart of the Chelsea midfield.”
Kante, who joined the Blues in 2016, won the Premier League title in his debut campaign before last season’s FA Cup triumph.
