The two – year extension means Moses is committed to Chelsea until 2021 and has earned a significant pay rise to his previous £ 45 , 000 – a – week wages after becoming a crucial member of head coach Antonio Conte ’ s Premier League table – topping team.

“ 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. ”
Moses was sent on loan for three successive seasons by former manager Jose Mourinho , to Liverpool , Stoke City and West Ham United, having joined Chelsea from Wigan in 2012 .
