Chelsea has confirmed that the club will be retaining the Nigerian trio of John Mikel Obi, Victor Moses and Kenneth Omeruo, ahead of the 2016/2017 season.
Mikel Obi, who has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge severally, played more minutes under interim manager, Guus Hiddink, after Jose Mourinho was fired in December.
Moses and Omeruo spent last season on loan at West Ham and Kasimpasa respectively.
It remains to be seen if any of the Super Eagles players, will be part of Antonio Conte’s plans in the new season.
Other players with Nigerian heritage retained include Dominic Ayodele Solanke, Ugbo Ike and Tomori Fikayo.
Olu Aina is in negotiations over a new deal.
