Mason Mount followed in the footsteps of Chelsea team-mate Ruben Loftus-Cheek by signing a new long-term contract with the Blues.

The 20-year-old is expected to be a part of the first team this season after excelling in his last two loan spells.

Mount, who has been tipped for a bright future, signed a new deal that will keep him at the club until 2024.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard will be excited Mount has extended his Chelsea contract and he will hoping two other Chelsea players sign new contract deals soon.

1. Callum Hudson-Odoi

The 18-year-old is into the last year of his Chelsea contract and is yet to sign a new deal amid interest from German champions Bayern Munich.

Chelsea rejected four bids from Bayern Munich for Hudson-Odoi in January as the club sees the talented youngster as the future of Chelsea.

One reason why Hudson-Odoi has stalled on signing a new deal is because of his concern over the amount of game time he will receive at Stamford Bridge.

It is believed he would extend his Chelsea contract following the arrival of Frank Lampard as Chelsea boss due to Lampard’s willingness to play youngsters.

Lampard insists Hudson-Odoi can be a world-class player at Stamford Bridge.

“I am not going to say things that are pie in the sky but, with his talent, he can be central to this team, he can be central to England,” said Lampard.

“He can show, right here at Chelsea, the team he came through the academy at, that he is going to be a world-class player – because I truly believe that.

“I will pay a lot of care and attention to Callum – because of the contractual position he is in – to try to get him to stay, and not with any lies or any false statements to him.

“That of course goes to a decision between him and the club and I am not involved in the financial negotiations, but I can certainly tell him how I see it and I see him being a huge player for us.”

2. Willian

The Brazilian is expected to become an important player for the club following the departure of Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.

Willian’s current contract runs out next summer, and the Blues are keen on extending that by another year.

However, Willian is reluctant to extend by just one year and reportedly wants at least a two-year deal.

Lampard will be hoping the club and Willian quickly reach an agreement.

Meanwhile, Willian is looking forward to working with Lampard at Chelsea.

“He is a legend,” Willian said. “He was an extraordinary player for the club, winning every possible title.

“He deserves so much respect and backing for what he has already achieved at the club. If Chelsea do bring him in, he will be very welcome.”
