Chelsea News: Lucas Piazon to extend Fulham stay

Mukhtar Ali secures Vitesse loan

Chelsea midfielder Lucas Piazon has confirmed that he has agreed to extend his temporary deal at Fulham until the end of the season.

The Brazilian footballer initially joined the Cottagers on a short-term loan and has since been impressive under manager Slavisa Jokanovic this season.

Piazon has never lived up to his promise at Stamford Bridge, but it seems he could earn his chance to establish himself as a regular at Craven Cottage.

“Almost done mate, hope to be done asap.” Piazon replied on Twitter after being asked by one of the Cottagers faithful.

The 22-year-old has previously revealed his frustration at being loaned out by Chelsea season after season, and he will seek to earn a permanent contract with the Championship outfit in the summer.

Piazon, who has featured for Brazil at youth level, has had stints at Malaga, Vitesse, Eintracht Frankfurt, and Reading respectively over the past four seasons.
