Broja, 20, would have been on the radar for West Ham United, Newcastle United and Everton during the closed season but has committed his future to Chelsea after breaking into the first team in the opening weeks of the new campaign. “I’m at a loss for words just thinking about it. This is the club I’ve dreamed of playing for all my life, the club I support and the club I love,” Broja told https: //www.chelseafc. com/en/news/article/new-contract-for-broja Chelsea’s website.
“I’ve been here since I was a boy, so it’s a surreal feeling for me and my family.” The Albania international spent last season on loan at Southampton, scoring nine goals in 38 games in all competitions. He has made three substitute appearances for Chelsea this season.
Chelsea have also announced the transfer of 28-year-old striker Michy Batshuayi to Turkish club Fenerbahce on a two-year deal with an option of a further 12 months. The Belgian, who was at Besiktas last season in the latest of a series of loans, scored 25 goals in 77 appearances for Chelsea after joining Olympique de Marseille in 2016.
