Lewis Dunk has signed a new five-year contract with Brighton and Hove Albion following speculation linking him with Chelsea.
The defender was reportedly a target for Frank Lampard, who is eager to strengthen his defence ahead of the 2020-21 season.
There were rumours Chelsea were prepared to offer £40million for the 28-year-old, who has been with Brighton for his whole career aside from a short loan spell with Bristol City.
Captain Dunk has apparently ended talk over his future by agreeing to a deal that will keep him at the club until 2025.
Head coach Graham Potter told the club's website: "We're absolutely delighted that Lewis has made this long-term commitment to the club. It's fantastic news for everyone: the club, the supporters, the team and myself.
"Since I came to the club he's been a joy to work with and he's a top player. We are very lucky to have him.
"I think his role as captain is one he’s grown into and one he will do better and better for the next few years."
Dunk said: "I'm delighted to have signed a new contract. The aim now is to build on a record Premier League season and help the club continue its recent progress over the next five years."
