Mason Mount set to sign new deal

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is close to finalising a new long-term contract, according to Football Insider.

The 22-year-old has had a mixed campaign with the Blues, but he continues to remain a key player under Thomas Tuchel.

His current deal does not expire until the summer of 2024, but the Blues recently opened talks over a new contract.

Mount reportedly felt underappreciated, and the hierarchy have now agreed terms over an improved deal to satisfy him.

He is currently on a weekly salary of £75,000. The new contract will double his wages, keeping him at the club until 2025.

Aside from Mount, the Blues are also in advanced negotiations over a new contract with centre-back Andreas Christensen.

The Dane's deal expires at the end of the campaign, but Thomas Tuchel recently hinted that a renewal is on the horizon.

They have not made similar progress with Antonio Rudiger. The German could leave for free when his contract expires next summer.
