Chelsea midfielder Oriol Romeu has signed a new three-year contract at Stamford Bridge, the club has announced.
The 22-year-old moved to the Blues from Barcelona in August 2011 and has now penned a deal to remain with Jose Mourinho's side until 2017.
Romeu made 16 Premier League appearances in his first season with the Blues, but a knee injury limited his opportunities and hampered his development.
Since then the Spaniard has found his first-team opportunities at the club limited, leading to a loan spell in La Liga with Valencia last season.
He has subsequently returned to England for preseason training with Chelsea and played over 70 minutes in a 5-0 friendly victory over Wycombe Wanderers on Wednesday.
Romeu has represented Spain at the under-21 level and played for his country at the 2012 London Olympics.
