Official: Chelsea attacker signs new 2-year Contract

Lucas Piazon has signed a new two-year contract at Chelsea and will now spend the 2017/18 season back at Fulham.

The 23-year-old had one year to run on his current terms, signed in the summer of 2015, and has now recommitted to the Premier League champions.

Piazon impressed at Craven Cottage, initially arriving on a short-term deal before having it extended, scoring on his debut before going on to make 29 Championship appearances.

The Brazilian, who has made just one appearance for the Blues, scored six goals and provided a further four assists across on competitions for Fulham last term.

“I believe it is a very good move for me and I am very happy with the decision,” Piazon told Fulham’s official website.

“There is a certain feeling of unfinished business. It felt like I must come back and help the team to reach what we were chasing last year, so it will be a very exciting season.

“This is the first time I will spend two seasons with a club. I am excited to see the boys and get back into training.”
