Anjorin Close To New Chelsea Deal
By Sampson Adedeji
England born, highly rated Chelsea academy graduate Tino Anjorin is close to signing a new long-term deal at Stamford Bridge.
The 18-year-old has more than a year to run on his current Blues deal but is now expected to finalise extended terms to keep him in west London, BSN Reports.
Anjorin is the latest in a string of home grown stars to make a Stamford Bridge breakthrough this term, and the move towards a new contract underscores boss Frank Lampard’s confidence in the England Under-19 star’s potential.
Poole-born Anjorin joined Chelsea’s development centre programme at under-sevens level, officially signing for the club two years later.
Anjorin who has played once for Chelsea first team this season, is still eligible to play for Nigeria’s Super Eagles despite playing for England Junior Three Lions.
