Victor Moses signed a new four-year deal with the Blues reportedly worth £75,000 a week.
And according to The Times, Moses’ new deal sees him go from £45,000 a week up to £75,000 a week.
The £30,000 wage hike still doesn’t put him in the same bracket as Chelsea’s top earners, with midfielder Cesc Fabregas on £220,000 a week.
However, it does represent the club’s admiration of Moses’ efforts this season. And Chelsea boss, Antonio Conte said the Nigerian star “deserves” his new contract with the club.
Moses spent the last three years away from Stamford Bridge, on loan at Liverpool, West Ham and Stoke City. However, he has been given a chance to shine by manager Antonio Conte this season.
Speaking at his Friday press conference, ahead of Monday’s game at West Ham, Conte said: “He deserves a new contract. He is a good guy with great technique”.
Moses himself, had expressed his happiness after signing the contract.
The 26-year-old said: “I feel very excited. I’m delighted to be here for another few years now and to sign a new deal. Now it’s time to concentrate on the team and keep working hard to make sure we win games and try to win the Premier League this season.
“We’re having a great season, I’m enjoying my football and we have a good manager here that has given every single one of us confidence. I just want to keep on enjoying it and working hard for the team.”
