Giroud extends Chelsea contract
Olivier Giroud has signed a new one-year contract at Chelsea, the Premier League club have confirmed.
Giroud, who joined from Arsenal in January 2018, will now remain with the Blues for the 2019-20 season.
The striker has scored a competition-high 10 Europa League goals this season and is set to face his old club in next week’s final in Baku.
And he will do so with his future settled by putting pen to paper on a 12-month extension.
“I am very happy to sign a new contract,” France forward Giroud told Chelsea’s official club website.
“I really wanted to stay at least one more year – I have felt a part of the team, the family, since the beginning and hopefully there will be more trophies to come.”
