Chelsea winger Willian has committed his long-term future to the club by signing a new four-year contract that will keep him at Stamford Bridge until 2020, ending any speculation of a summer exit.
“I’m very happy to sign a new contract with Chelsea. It’s a dream to continue with this club and over the next four years I will try to help the team win more trophies,” he told Chelseafc.com.
The 27-year-old Brazilian was one of just a small handful of Chelsea players to come out of last season with any pride still intact after countless impressive displays in a campaign which saw the reigning Premier League champions finish 10th.
He was personally on fire for the majority of the season and proved himself as a dead ball specialist.
“It’s been an amazing time for me since I joined the club three years ago, I’ve won titles and last season I was named Chelsea Player of the Year,” the player added.
“I hope to be able to stay at that level during the coming seasons and achieve more success.”
Technical director Michael Emenalo was full of praise for the former Shakhtar Donetsk star.
“We are very pleased to agree a new long-term deal with Willian, who has proved himself to be an important player for the team since he arrived here,” he said.
“We are looking forward to seeing his continued impact as we begin an exciting new campaign under first-team head coach Antonio Conte.”
