Willian has committed his future to Chelsea

Chelsea forward Willian has signed a new four-year contract at Stamford Bridge.

The 27-year-old was voted Blues' player of the year in 2015/16 by SUPPORTERS and teammates alike and he has now committed himself to the club until 2020.

Willian has scored 19 goals in 140 appearances for Chelsea after moving to Stamford Bridge from Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala for £32m in 2013.

He won the Premier League and Capital One Cup during his second season in west London and vowed to help the club achieve further success in the future.

"I'm very happy to sign a new contract with Chelsea. It's a dream to continue with this club and over the next four years I will try to help the team win more trophies," Willian told the club's official website.

"It's been an amazing time for me since I joined the club three years ago, I've won titles and last season I was named Chelsea Player of the Year.

"I hope to be able to stay at that level during the coming seasons and achieve more success."

Technical director Michael Emenalo was also delighted Willian will remain at Chelsea.

"We are very pleased to agree a new long-term deal with Willian who has proved himself to be an important player for the team since he arrived here," he said.

"We are looking forward to seeing his continued impact as we begin an exciting new campaign under first-team head coach Antonio Conte."
