Charly Musonda has signed a new deal at Chelsea, which should see his career with the club run up to at least 2022.
The Belgian starlet was rumoured to be disenchanted with his role at Stamford Bridge after expressing discontent in an Instagram post earlier this season. And other Premier League clubs were reported as being interested in snatching him from the Blues.
