Chelsea striker Armando Broja has committed his future to the Blues by signing a new six-year contract at Stamford Bridge.
The forward caught the eye of several Premier League clubs over the summer, including Everton and West Ham, but did not move in the transfer window.
Broja’s new deal comes a day after Chelsea signed striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in a £10m deal.
(ads1)Xavi ‘feels bad’ over Aubameyang exit
Barcelona manager Xavi has described Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as an “example for the club” after the striker left the Spanish giants for Chelsea.
Aubameyang completed a Deadline Day move to Chelsea for £10m, with Blues defender Marcos Alonso moving the other way.
The striker’s exit from Arsenal earlier this year has raised doubts about the Gabon striker’s temperament, but Xavi has given Chelsea a glowing recommendation about his attitude.
“I feel bad because he helped us a lot,” said Xavi. “He was an example on and off the pitch. He made a big difference – look at his numbers.

“We needed to put the pieces of the puzzle together and in the end, I think we’re all happy. But I feel bad as a coach to lose a player like Aubameyang. He was an example for the club and for all players. “
