New Deals For Chelsea Full-back & Midfielder

Chelsea might not be exactly pulling off any snatch and grabs in the transfer market right now but that’s not to say business has ceased altogether because there’s been new deals signed by a couple of youngsters we definitely needed to keep hold of.

Midfielder Josh McEachran, who has already managed 17 first-team appearances for us, has signed a five-year deal.  Our 18 year-old, is hoping to continue the progress he’s made so far which includes four starts for the first-team and says “I need to keep working. This season my target is just to play more minutes.  Hopefully I will play more games and keep improving.”

Full-back Ryan Bertrand meanwhile, has got himself a four-year contract.  The 21 year-old, who returned for his debut against Birmingham in April following loan spells at Norwich, Reading and Forest, says “It is a big commitment, I see the club going in the right direction.  I want to stay here, it’s the reason I came here six years ago and it’s refreshing to have the new manager come in.  I am looking forward to listening and learning from him.  I can see the manager is young and hungry and wants to take the club forward so I want to be part of that and I thought it was best for me to stay.  Obviously Ashley (Cole) is number one left-back but hopefully I can get a game here and there.  I am aiming to get a few more games. I hope to stay here this season and hopefully catch the manager’s eye.”

Let’s hope AVB gives them their chance then!
