London, Sep 19 (IANS) Chelsea defensive midfielder Ethan Ampadu has signed a contract extension tying him to the club until 2023, the English Premier League side announced on Wednesday.
The Wales international, who can play as either a centre-back or midfielder, joined Chelsea from Exeter City in the summer of 2017, and had a great start to the 2017/2018 season before being sidelined due to injury, reports Efe.
"I'm really proud and happy. I'm looking forward to the next five years, and all I have got to do now is continue to work hard, and hopefully good things will happen," Ampadu said in a statement on the club's website.
Ampadu has positioned himself as a regular player on the Welsh national team, and on September 6 made his competitive debut for the Dragons in their 4-1 win over Ireland in the UEFA Nations League group stage.
Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia went on to say that Ampadu "has shown great potential and unbelievable maturity since arriving at Chelsea a year ago."
"In this short time, he convinced a lot of people with his exceptional quality and mentality, and we look forward to watching him develop into a key player for the club over the coming years," she added.
