Brazil international Willian has signed a new four-year contract with Chelsea that will see him remain with the club until the summer of 2020.

The 27-year-old has been with the West London outfit since joining from Anzhi Makhachkala for £32million in 2013 and he has since gone on to score 19 goals in 140 appearances for the club.

The winger won the Premier League and Capital One Cup with the Blues during the 2014-15 campaign, while he was also voted the club’s player of the year by supporters and teammates alike last season.

The former Shakhtar Donetsk ace will now remain at Stamford Bridge for the next four years and he told the club’s official website that he is delighted to have committed his long-term future to Antonio Conte’s side.

He said: “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 is now hoping to build on the success he has already achieved with the club, as he bids to win more trophies both domestically and in Europe.

He continued: “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.”

Chelsea will begin the new Premier League campaign with a home match against West Ham on August 15 and they are available at 1.57 to begin the season with a victory, while the Hammers are on offer at 5.50 and the draw is priced at 3.80.
