Teen star agrees new deal
Chelsea’s teenage star Tino Anjorin has agreed in principle a new contract which will run until 2025.
The 18-year-old will sign the new deal in the coming weeks but it is understood everything is in place except the England youth international’s signature.
Anjorin recently made his Premier League debut, coming off the bench in Chelsea’s 4-0 win over Everton last month. This came after he made his senior debut in 2019 in a League Cup tie with Grimsby Town.

Frank Lampard is said to have been pleased with the youngster’s progress over the past couple of months – and becomes the ninth academy player to sign a new contract this season.
Lampard to be bankrolled by £150million transfer kitty
The Daily Express has today reported that Frank Lampard is set to be handed £150million this summer as he looks to rebuild his Chelsea squad.
The Blues have already secured the signing of AFC Ajax’s Hakim Ziyech on a deal believed to be worth £38million. However, the club’s top targets this summer reportedly include a left-back, a goalkeeper and a striker.
One player Lampard is also keeping an eye on is LOSC Lille defender Gabriel Magalhães . The Brazilian centre-back is wanted by a number of European clubs.
Left-back swap at Stamford Bridge
FC Porto’s Alex Telles has been touted as a potential target for Chelsea over the past few months.
A price of £35million has been quoted for the 27-year-old, who recently switched agents to Pini Zahavi – the man who has conducted many dealings with Chelsea in the past.
The Sun claim Chelsea are expecting to offload both Emerson Palmieri and Marcos Alonso this summer, as they look to bring in a fresh face at left-back.
