Eden Hazard has signed a new five-and-a-half-year-deal with Premier League leaders Chelsea, ​the club has confirmed on its website.


The Belgian winger has been linked with moves to Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain in recent months, but appears to have put an end to the speculation by tying himself to the Blues until June 2020.


​​

The 24-year-old, who was Chelsea's player of the year last season, has scored 13 times in 36 outings during the 2014-15 campaign.


"I am very happy to sign a new contract with Chelsea," Hazard said. "Since I came here in 2012 I have always felt good and the club has been very supportive to me.


"The manager has helped me improve a lot, the fans have been fantastic and I have an amazing understanding with my team-mates.




"I always try to give pleasure to the supporters with my style of play and it is nice to know they appreciate my work.


"I hope we can repay that support by winning lots of trophies, beginning with the Capital One Cup at Wembley, and after that, we can push hard towards the end of the season."


Blues boss Jose Mourinho added: "I am very happy that Eden has signed a new contract. It shows he believes in the club’s coaching staff and players to help him become the best player in the world.


"He is already a top player and his evolution has been fantastic. He is still very young and he can become the best."





The £32m signing from Lille has established himself as one of the Premier League's top talents in recent seasons and has completed more dribbles and drawn more fouls than anyone else in the division throughout 2014-15.


Hazard has played 147 times for the Blues in total, scoring on 43 occasions.


He helped the west Londoners to Europa League success in his debut season at Stamford Bridge and is on course to secure a league, Champions League and Capital One Cup treble this term.
