Lampard’s Favourite Midfielder Pens 5-Year Contract At Chelsea
July. 15, 2019
Chelsea have shown a desire to keep youngster, Mason Mount, at the club this season under new manager, Frank Lampard, after they announced the midfielder has signed a new five-year contract with the club.
The 20-year-old England Under-21 international who spent last season playing under Lampard during a loan spell at Derby proved himself an effective weapon in the hands of the new Blues gaffer.
Reacting to his new deal while speaking to the club’s website, Mount said, "it's a massively proud moment for myself and my family.”
Mount had a loan spell at Vitesse Arnhem in 2017-18, scoring nine goals in 29 Eredivisie appearances and five more in three play-off games as the Dutch club qualified for the Europa League.
Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said: "Mason has come right the way through the Chelsea academy and has always stood out as a fantastic talent and dedicated individual.
"We have monitored his development extremely closely while he has been out on loan and believe he is now ready to be a member of our squad competing at the top of the Premier League.
"Like another of our academy graduates, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, we are delighted Mason has committed himself to the club this summer and look forward to an exciting future ahead."
Chelsea are locked in contract talks with another academy graduate, Callum Hodson-Odoi, as the Blues look to ward off the interest of Bayern Munich who are desperate to have the teenager in their ranks next season.
