Chelsea ready to tie down youngster on extended contract

News has emerged that Chelsea have offered youngster Aziz Deen-Conteh the chance to sign a new long-term deal at Stamford Bridge after an impressive first half to the season.

The 19 year-old is yet to make a break into the side’s first-team but is a steady fixture in the Chelsea reserve side, making nine appearances for them this season.

The left-back has registered two assists in that period and has earned a reputation for his surging runs down the left flank capable of lending a considerable hand in attack.

Chelsea currently have Ryan Bertrand and Patrick van Aanholt as cover for Ashley Cole at left-back, however Deen-Conteh will be buoyed by rumours that the duo may be on their way out of Stamford Bridge after failing to meet expectations at the club.

Deen-Conteh has made five appearances for the England Under-19 side but is still a selection option for Sierra Leone as he was born in the African nation.

Chelsea coaching staff are known to be a fan of the defender and although the length of the tabled offer is currently unknown, the club will be hoping to secure their youngster’s signature in the hopes that he makes the next step in his development under their charge.
