Reports have confirmed that Chelsea have agreed a new long-term deal with 18-year-old prospect Tino Anjorin, keeping him at the club till 2025.

Anjorin’s deal was due to expire in 2021, but the youngster is highly rated by the club, and Chelsea were keen to make him commit his future to the club.

The new contract is yet to be signed, but it has been agreed in principle between player and club, Goal can confirm.

Anjorin made his first team debut earlier this season, appearing in the 7-1 League Cup victory over Grimsby Town in September when he was just 17-years-old, and made his Premier League debut in the 4-0 victory over Everton just before the league was suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Anjorin had revealed that he wants to be a top player for Chelsea in the next five years.

He told the Independent: “I want to be scoring, I want to be creating. In five years time, I want to be a leader in the team, helping the younger academy kids to come through, where they can look up to me too and thrive as well.”
