Lucas Piazon has now become the latest Blues player to sign a new deal before heading out on loan again. The Brazilian midfielder’s previous deal was going to expire next season, but he agreed a new two-year extension on Friday (14 July) that now keeps him under contract until 2020.

“I believe it is a very good move for me,” the 23-year-old said of his move back to Craven Cottage. “And I am very happy with the decision. There is a certain feeling of unfinished business.

“It felt like I must come back and help the team to reach what we were chasing last year, so it will be a very exciting season.

“This is the first time I will spend two seasons with a club. I am excited to see the boys and get back into training.”

Piazon has made just three senior appearances for Chelsea since arriving from Sao Paulo as an 18-year-old, all of which came back in 2012.
