Chelsea have secured the long-term future of highly-rated striker Islam Feruz, according to reports.

Sky Sports understand that the talented teenager has penned a new deal with the Blues that will keep him in west London until 2018.

Chelsea acquired the teenager's services from Celtic back in 2011, with the youngster costing just £300,000 because of a 'loophole' in the legal system, according to

He's since gone on to impress for the Blues at junior and second-string levels, scoring twice in the FA Youth Cup final in 2012 and appearing regular for the club's U21 side.

Feruz has also worked his way up the ranks in the Scotland set-up, with the Somalian-born forward making a first appearance for the U16s back in 2009. He's since played for the country at four other levels, including U21.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has clearly been impressed, with 'the special one' taking the teenager on the club's pre-season tour of Asia in the summer.

Now tied down to the club for another four-and-a-half years, the report goes on to claim that Feruz could leave Stamford Bridge on loan, as the youngster looks to gain first team experience away from the Blues.
