On signing his new deal, 20-year-old Mount said:
‘It’s a massively proud moment for myself and my family. I joined this club at six years old and it was always my goal to play for the first team one day. I’m really looking forward to the coming season now and working hard to have an impact here at Chelsea. I’ve been at the club for a long time already and hopefully, I’ll stay for a long time to come.’
Marina Granovskaia, Chelsea director added:
‘Mason has come right the way through the Chelsea Academy and has always stood out as a fantastic talent and dedicated individual. We have monitored his development extremely closely while he has been out on loan and believe he is now ready to be a member of our squad competing at the top of the Premier League.
‘Like another of our Academy graduates, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, we are delighted Mason has committed himself to the club this summer and look forward to an exciting future ahead.’
In July 2018, he moved on loan to Championship side Derby County, managed by Lampard and his former youth team boss Jody Morris, he made a total of 44 appearances across all competitions for Derby, scoring 11 goals.
