Schurrle managed 14 appearances for the Blues earlier in the campaign meaning he is eligible for a Premier League medal following the west London club's title triumph.
Upon hearing the news from manager Jose Mourinho, Schurrle admitted it was a thrill to be able to get the opportunity to share the moment with his teammates.
"I didn't know that I'd get a medal when I didn't play most of the second half of the season," he told BBC World Service's World Football programme.
"I'm really happy for the boys. They played a very good second half of the season so of course for me it's good to get a medal but the boys did the work."
