Chelsea are confident of securing midfielder N’Golo Kante to a new long-term contract, according to Sky sources.

The France World Cup winner, who attracted interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona in the summer, has over two-and-a-half years remaining on his present deal at Stamford Bridge.

Sky sources understand Chelsea are determined to keep Kante and have no interest in selling him, with talks over a new contract ongoing.
