2013 Africa Cup of Nations winner Victor Moses is among four Nigeria-eligible players retained by Chelsea for the 2020-2021 season, informs the official website of the English Premier League.
The right wing-back will enter the final twelve months of his contract with The Blues on July 1 and is expected to see out the remainder of the season at Inter Milan, before a decision on his long term future will be made.
Attacking midfielder cum winger Faustino Anjorin, striker Ike Ugbo and midfielder Tariq Uwakwe are the other Nigeria-eligible players retained.
Anjorin is now contracted to Chelsea until the summer of 2025, Ugbo has a deal until 2021 and Uwakwe is tied to the club until 2022, having inked a fresh three-year deal last summer.
Everything is pointing to the fact that Ugbo will embark on his fifth loan spell next season, having previously spent time on loan at Barnsley, Milton Keynes Dons, Scunthorpe United and Roda JC, where he impressed last term.
Meanwhile, Ola Aina’s younger brother, Jordan, will move onto pastures new following his release by the Stamford Bridge outfit.
Aged 18, Jordan Aina officially joined Chelsea at U9 level and departs the club after recording 14 appearances in the U18 Premier League and debuting in the UEFA Youth League.
