Chelsea and France international midfielder N’Golo Kante has signed a new five-year deal to keep him at Stamford Bridge until 2023.
The 27-year-old has scored three goals in 81 Premier League appearances for the Blues since he joined the club from Leicester City in 2016.
The Blues won the league title in Kante’s first season at Stamford Bridge and in the same season the French was named the Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year.
“It has been two beautiful years and I wish for more to come,” BBC quoted the French man to say.
“Since I came, I have completely improved as a player, challenged myself and got some awards I never thought about.”I like the city, I like the club and I am happy to be here for more time.”
Kante has also made 36 caps for France and was a key player in the French squad when they won the World Cup in Russia this summer after beating Croatia 4-2 in the final.
