BY foxsports • July 15, 2011

England under-21 internationals Josh McEachran and Ryan Bertrand have signed new contracts with Premier League side Chelsea.

The 18-year-old McEachran signed a five-year contract and 21-year-old Bertrand committed to a four-year deal. Both players made their first-team debuts last season as Chelsea finished runner-up to Manchester United.

McEachran is regarded by many fans as Chelsea's brightest prospect for years and says the long-term contract is ''what I wished for when I was a kid and hopefully I will spend my career at Chelsea.''
