Gary Cahill reacts to Chelsea securing midfielder signing: He’s going to be a big player

Loftus-Cheek put pen to paper on a new five-year deal on Monday with Chelsea doubling his wages to over £60,000-a-week and promising him first team opportunities.

The 20-year-old has made nine appearances in all competitions this season and four since Guus Hiddink replaced Jose Mourinho as manager in December.
