Chelsea appear to have missed out on the chance to sign Newcastle defender Jamaal Lascelles in January with the news that the player has committed his future to the club.
The Shields Gazette report that the player has signed a new six-year deal at St James Park, ending any speculation about his future.
The new deal will see the player earn a reported £70,000 a week at the club.
Both Chelsea and Tottenham have been long-term admirers of the player and have been keeping a watchful eye on his situation.
With concerns over Newcastle’s form this season, there had been suggestions clubs could come in for him in January.
The 24-year-old has been Newcastle’s star man throughout their time in the Premier League and has now seen his form rewarded with a bumper new deal at the club.
The news will come as a major boost to the Premier League strugglers, who would have been desperate to keep hold of him for as long as possible.
