Transfer: 20-year-old midfielder gives reason for signing five-year deal with Chelsea

England youngster, Mason Mount, on Monday, said he signed a new five-year deal with Chelsea because he wants to play in Manager Frank Lampard’s first team next season.

Mount played under Lampard during his time on loan at Derby County last season.

The 20-year-old helped the Rams reach the Championship play-off final last campaign.

Speaking after signing a new deal with Chelsea, Mount told the club’s official website: “It’s a massively proud moment for myself and my family. I joined this club at six years old and it was always my goal to play for the first team one day.

“I’m really looking forward to the coming season now and working hard to have an impact here at Chelsea. I’ve been at the club for a long time already and hopefully I’ll stay for a long time to come.”
