Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has agreed on a new contract with the club and an official announcement is expected soonest.

The 23-year-old England international star has two years left on his current deal at Stamford Bridge and the West Londoners have moved to secure his long-term future at the club.

The Chelsea Academy graduate was linked with a move away from the club last summer shortly after he returned to Stamford Bridge from a loan spell from fellow London club Crystal Palace.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek spent the 2017/18 season at Crystal Palace as a Chelsea loanee and he impressed a great deal at the club.

His form for the Eagles led to him being named in the 23-man England squad for last summer’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek and England finished the tournament as the fourth best team.

The 23-year-old stayed at Chelsea after the tournament and he went on to score 10 goals in 40 appearances.

Loftus-Cheek also added five assists as Chelsea win the Europa League title via a 4-1 win over London rivals Arsenal.

The England international midfielder will earn £150,000 on a weekly basis for the new contract agreed with Chelsea.

The said five-year contract is expected to run until the end of the 2023/24 season.
