Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has signed a new five-year contract with the reigning Premier League champions.

Loftus-Cheek, 20, made his league debut for Chelsea in January 2015 and has played eight times in the top-flight.

The England Under-21 international has also made two Champions League appearances for the Blues.

"The club have done so much for me since I started here as an Under-8," said Loftus-Cheek.

"Now I want to repay the faith they've shown in me with my performances on the pitch."

Loftus-Cheek scored his first senior goal for Chelsea in the 2-0 FA Cup third round win over Scunthorpe United at Stamford Bridge on 10 January.

Defender Dion Conroy, 20, has signed a new contract until 2018.
