Ethan Ampadu Signs Five-Year Chelsea Contract Extension



Ethan Ampadu

Ethan Ampadu has signed a five-year contract extension at Chelsea, keeping him at Stamford Bridge until 2023.

The 18-year-old Wales international of Ghanaian descent is yet to feature under new head coach Maurizio Sarri, but made seven appearances under his predecessor Antonio Conte last term.

Speaking to Chelsea’s official club website, he said: “I’m really proud and happy. I’m looking forward to the next five years and all I have got to do now is continue to work hard, and hopefully, good things will happen.”

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia added: “Ethan has shown great potential and unbelievable maturity since arriving at Chelsea a year ago.

“In this short time he convinced a lot of people with his exceptional quality and mentality and we look forward to watching him develop into a key player for the club over the coming years.”

Asked last week what Ampadu has to do to break into the Chelsea starting XI, Sarri said: “In this first period, for me it was very important not to change especially the defensive line.

“But I hope in the future to be able to give space to everyone, even the defenders. In the first period, as you know, it’s very difficult to change the defensive line.”

Cardiff boss Neil Warnock said, ahead of Saturday’s 4-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge, that he would be keen to take Ampadu on loan, saying he “doesn’t look out of place” at the top level.

Ampadu announced himself on the international stage during his competitive Wales debut – a man-of-the-match display in a 4-1 victory over Republic of Ireland – leading to calls for him to make the Blues first team.

The embattled firm has now set September 28, 2018 to resume the controversial service.

In a release Tuesday, Menzgold has informed its customers that “Following our correspondence with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), we regret to advise that the Gold Vault Market product services will continue to be suspended until the 28th September, 2018 to enable us reach a useful conclusion with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).”

Menzgold announced last Thursday that it has temporarily halted its collectables and any new business related to its gold vault market.

The company explained at the time that the halt of the service, also called extra value payments, will resume on September 19, “by which time we believe all pending issues related to the Gold Vault Market Product would have been ironed out.”

The SEC and the Bank of Ghana are fighting the company over claims it is operating a business not covered by its operating licence.

Menzgold insists its services do not breach any regulation.
