Chelsea striker Dominic Solanke is set to pen a new deal after lowering his wage demands, according to The Times.

The England under-21 attacker is highly rated and regarded as one of the shining lights to have come through the Stamford Bridge youth academy in recent years.

Solanke was initially at a standoff with the Premier League club over wages, with reports in the press stating that the former Vitesse Arnhem man was demanding £50,000 per week to extend his terms at the West London club.

However, the latest report suggests that the 19-year-old attacker is ready to be more realistic over payment and that his extension with Chelsea will be confirmed in the near future.

The England under-21 starlet has never made a Premier League appearance for the Blues but was included by Antonio Conte on the senior side’s bench for the recent 3-0 win over Leicester City.

The Italian trainer appears to be putting more emphasis on young players since taking over at Chelsea, which could well be good news for promising starlets such as Solanke.
