Mason Mount is eyeing a long stay at Chelsea after putting pen to paper on a new five-year contract. England Under-21 international Mount, who joined Chelsea’s youth ranks back in 2005, spent last season on loan at Championship outfit Derby, where he worked under current Blues boss Frank Lampard.

The 20-year-old midfielder scored nine goals from 38 league appearances to help the Rams reach the play-off final, which they lost 2-1 to Dean Smith’s Aston Villa. Having returned to Stamford Bridge, the Portsmouth-born star has looked impressive during pre-season and has now been rewarded with a new contract until the summer of 2024.
Speaking to the club’s official website about his new deal, Mount said: “It’s a massively proud moment for myself and my family. I joined this club at six years old and it was always my goal to play for the first team one day. “I’m really looking forward to the coming season now and working hard to have an impact here at Chelsea. I’ve been at the club for a long time already and hopefully I’ll stay for a long time to come.”
