LONDON, NNC - Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso signs a new five-year contract that will tie him to Stamford Bridge until 2023.

The 27-year-old Spaniard was again a top choice by new Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri although Chelsea now plays in a four-defender format. The left-back position was successfully played by Alonso.

"I am so happy to stay here longer and to keep playing for one of the best teams in the world," Alonso said as quoted by the club's official website.

Its been a very good two seasons and I am looking forward to more."

Thanks to his slick appearance with Chelsea, which Alonso strengthened the team three seasons. Alonso is one of the defenders who frequently scored goals in the Premier League.

Ever since joining Chelsea, he has scored 15 goals in 92 appearances for the Blues.
