Antonio Conte has revealed his delight at having signed a new contract with Chelsea this week.

Despite some speculation about his future, Conte put pen to paper on a new two-year deal with the Blues on Tuesday as he committed his future to the west London side.

Conte enjoyed a sparkling debut campaign in the Premier League as he led the west London side to the title in his first season at the club.

The Italian manager is now preparing for his side to make a return to the Champions League as they look to challenge for trophies on four fronts next season.

And Conte has expressed his delight at putting pen to paper on a new contract with the Stamford Bridge outfit.

Conte told Chelsea’s website: “I am very happy to have signed a new contract with Chelsea.

“We worked extremely hard in our first year to achieve something amazing, which I am very proud of. Now we must work even harder to stay at the top.

“The Chelsea fans have given me so much support since I arrived here one year ago and it is important we continue to succeed together.”

Chelsea missed out on the chance to win a domestic double last season after the Blues ended up losing to Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley back in May.

The west London side will be aiming to win their second ever Champions League crown this term.
