REPORTS: Chelsea's Tammy Abraham activates contract extension clause

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has reportedly activated a one-year extension clause in his contract by reaching a set number of goals and games this season, which now runs until 2023.

The contract extension will now calm Chelsea's worries over the future of the striker who was entering the final year of his five-year contract. 

Contract talks between the two parties have dragged since last year, raising concerns that Chelsea would need to agree a new contract with the 22-year-old this summer or risk being forced into a corner in negotiations.

Reports indicate that Abraham, Chelsea’s top scorer with 16 goals in 40 appearances, was also handed a pay rise to his previous £50,000 a week.

The Blues have in the recent weeks moved to tie down their flourishing academy graduates, handing long-term deals to Mason Mount, Reece James, Billy Gilmour, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Fikayo Tomori and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Manager Frank Lampard has in the past said Abraham, who could start when Chelsea visit Sheffield United on Saturday, remains a big part of Lampard’s plans despite the signing of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig.
