Chelsea are prepared to offer a short-term contract extension to Mason Mount in an attempt to end the immediate uncertainty over his future at the club, 90min understands.

Mount is approaching the final 12 months of his current deal and has long been warned that he will be sold this summer if he continues to reject the offer of fresh terms, with the vast majority of the Premier League's elite all keen to sign the 24-year-old if he does leave.

As 90min revealed earlier this month, Chelsea have a renewed sense of confidence over Mount's future. While there is still an awareness that an extension is a long way away, the decision-makers at Stamford Bridge believe things are trending in the right direction.
