Three Chelsea players revealed why the don’t want contract extension
Chelsea are on the verge of losing three of their best academy prospects — Valentino Livramento, Lewis Bate and Myles Peart-Harris — to other Premier League clubs.
They all have one year left on their current deals and are refusing to sign extensions.
Lewis Bate has made it clear to Chelsea he does not want to agree new contract terms.
He is not convinced of his path to the first team due to Chelsea targeting a new midfielder and having Gilmour ahead of him, therefore he will leave the club.
West Ham, Leeds, Liverpool, Leicester City and Brighton all keen.
West Ham and Leeds are ‘pushing the hardest’ and have made the Blues an offer.
Myles Peart-Harris is on the verge of a move to newly-promoted Brentford and has already said goodbye to his team-mates.
He was the joint-top scorer of Chelsea’s Development squad last season with 11 goals in 23 games.
Livramento will not sign, Adama Traore is on the club’s wishlist still.
