CHELSEA are in talks with Dujon Sterling over a new contract, football.london understands.
The 21-year-old is undertaking pre-season training with the first team and is currently in Ireland with the rest of the senior group that is being overseen by Thomas Tuchel and his coaching staff.
Sterling endured a difficult 2020. A hamstring injury sustained while on loan at Wigan Athletic at the start of the year kept him out for three months and, when he was ready to make his return, the Championship season was halted due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The academy graduate then suffered from a career-threatening injury during the United Kingdom’s first lockdown before contracting Covid-19 later in the year.
