Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has signed a new two-year contract.

Conte, who took over at Stamford Bridge last summer, led the Blues to the title in his first season in charge.

He already had two years of his contract left to run, but has signed new terms.

It follows months of speculation about the Italian’s future.

“I am very happy to have signed a new contract,” said Conte.

“We worked extremely hard in our first year to achieve something amazing, which I am very proud of. Now we must work even harder to stay at the top.

“The Chelsea fans have given me so much support since I arrived here one year ago and it is important we continue to succeed together.”

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said: “Antonio achieved incredible success last season, adapting to English football very quickly and leading us to the Premier League title.

“This new contract reflects our belief that he can continue to deliver results both domestically and as we return to European competition in the Champions League.”
