Nigerian footballer, Tino Anjorin signs five-year contract with Chelsea

Tino Anjorin has entered a five year contract agreement with an England football club Chelsea FC.

The 18-year-old midfielder, born to a Nigerian father and English mother in Poole will now be committed to the premiere league club until June 2025. ‘It’s a brilliant feeling,’ the England Under-19 international told the official Chelsea website after putting pen to paper on the new deal.

‘I’ve been at the club since I was six years old so to get to this stage and then be offered another five-year contract on top of that is amazing.

‘I had no hesitation but to take it straight away because to play for the club I always dreamed of playing for is really special for me.’ ‘It’s been a really crucial season for young players here,’ Anjorin went on.

‘Frank, Jody Morris and Joe Edwards have taken us on board and really committed themselves to bringing young players through. ‘It’s been really important to have those familiar faces around,’ he said of the former Academy coaches who are now working alongside Lampard.

‘It’s easy to talk to people and be around the first team building more because you’re welcomed in. ‘Hopefully, I can try to carry on being a part of that as long as I keep working hard and impressing the coaches.’

Tino Anjorin made his debut for the club in the 7-1 win over Grimsby in the Carabao Cup back in September.

He also featured as a substitute in Chelsea’s 4-0 win over Everton at Stamford Bridge in March.
