Chelsea director Granovskaia: Loftus-Cheek proof of academy success

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia is pleased to have secured Ruben Loftus-Cheek to a new deal.

The midfielder penned a five-year contract on Saturday.

Granovskaia said: "We see Ruben as an important part of the squad for many years to come and we are very pleased he also considers his future to be with Chelsea.

"He is proof of the fantastic work being done in the Chelsea Academy and in recent seasons has developed into a first-team regular and an England international. Under Frank Lampard's leadership, we believe he will be a key player for Chelsea and we look forward to welcoming him back once he has recovered from his injury."
