Kurt Zouma has signed a new six-year contract and will spend the 2017/18 season on loan at Stoke City.
Technical director Michael Emenalo said: ‘It is fantastic Kurt has chosen to commit his future to Chelsea. He has shown his talent since joining us three years ago, and has returned from a serious injury with a fantastic attitude.
‘Now he has the opportunity to play regularly in the Premier League and we will be monitoring his progress closely while he is at Stoke.’
The 22-year-old has won the Premier League twice since joining from St Etienne three-and-a-half years ago. He was also part of the team which beat Tottenham in the League Cup final 2015.
He links up with former Blues striker Mark Hughes at Stoke.
