Tammy Abraham has activated a one-year extension clause in his contract, which now runs until 2023.
Abraham penned a five-year contract with Chelsea in 2017, and now has three-years remaining in his contract.
The Blues opened talks with the England international over a long-term deal last year but have seen the issue drag on with little sign of a resolution.

However Chelsea have given themselves breathing space after Abraham activated the one-year extension by reaching a set number of goals and games this season.
Abraham, Chelsea’s top scorer with 16 goals in 40 appearances, has been handed a pay rise to his previous £50,000 a week.
Negotiations with Abraham have taken longer. He has seen the club hand Callum Hudson-Odoi a deal worth £120,000 a week and Recce James around £100,000 a week and believes he deserves similar financial rewards after a fine campaign under Frank Lampard.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
