Ruben Loftus-Cheek signs new Chelsea deal until 2024
Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has signed a new deal, which will keep him at the club until 2024.
The England international, 23, is currently in rehabilitation as he recovers from rupturing his Achilles tendon in a friendly in May.
That meant he missed Chelsea's Europa League final win and England's Nations League finals campaign.
He scored 10 goals in 40 games in 2018-19 in what was his breakthrough season at Chelsea.
"It's the place where I've grown up playing and hopefully I'll be playing here for a lot longer," said Loftus-Cheek, who joined the west London club at the age of eight.
Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said Loftus-Cheek would be a "key player" under new manager Frank Lampard.
The Blues are under a transfer embargo after being given a two-window transfer ban by Fifa - a decision they are appealing against at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
