France sensation to be handed Chelsea contract

Published Add your comment

Chelsea are set to award Gael Kakuta with a new long-term contract as he impresses for the first team, according to the Evening Standard.

The Ivorian has broken into the Chelsea squad at the end of last season and is highly rated by Carlo Ancelotti.

And, with his contract running out at the end of the season, Chelsea are set to offer him a five-year deal to keep him at Stamford Bridge for the foreseeable future.

Kakuta was named as player of the tournament at the European under-19 Championships this summer, as France lifted the trophy.

Kakuta came on as a substitute at Upton Park this weekend in Chelsea’s 3-1 victory over West Ham and can expect more opportunities.

Ancelotti praised Kakuta, saying: “Now he is first team, he will have the same opportunity as the other players and he deserves to play because he trained well, he is focused and concentrated.

“He will play and we now have to consider him not a young player but a player in the first team.”
