Chelsea youngster Tino Anjorin has signed a contract extension of five years, the Premier League club has confirmed.
The 18-year-old midfielder has been since the age of six with West London outfit and has made two appearances this season for Frank Lampard ‘s side.
The England Under-19 international made their senior debut against Grimsby in the third round of the Carabao Cup, coming midway through the second half as the Blues triumphed over the League Two side 7-1.
Anjorin then came on to replace Willian at the Premier League in March in the second half of Chelsea’s 4-0 win over Everton.
Anjorin had agreed in April to commit to another five years with the Stamford Bridge side, and the club has now announced that he will stay put.
“It’s a brilliant feeling. Since I was six years old I’ve been at the club so getting to this stage and then being offered another five-year contract on top of that is amazing. I didn’t hesitate to take it straight because playing for the club that I always dreamed of playing for is special to me,” Anjorin told the club’s official website.
Anjorin feels at home with the Chelsea stars as one of eight academy graduates to be given a shot in the first team under Lampard.
“For young players here it was a very important season. Frank, Jody Morris, and Joe Edwards took us onboard and dedicated themselves to getting young players through,” he said.
After feeling the support of the Chelsea fans he is hungry for more top-flight action.
