The Blues striker has now reached the appearance and goal requirements to see his current deal extended by a further year

Tammy Abraham has had his Chelsea contract extended by another year to 2023 after a clause was activated as he reached 15 Premier League goals.

The England striker was on the scoresheet in the Blues’ 3-2 win over Crystal Palace, with Frank Lampard’s side having won consecutive matches as they aim to finish in the Champions League spots.

The clause in Abraham’s contract gives Chelsea some further breathing room as they consider the forward’s long-term future, with his original deal having been due to expire in 2022.

Should the Blues consider a sale, they now have more leverage in any possible transfer talks for the 22-year-old, who is currently the club’s top scorer with 16 goals in all competitions.

The clause itself was agreed in 2017 and was also based on appearances, which had long been achieved by the Blues’ No.9 but has only come to light after both landmarks were reached.
