Chelsea have sealed the future of defender Trevoh Chalobah by signing the youngster up to a new long-term contract.

The 22-year-old, who joined the Blues aged eight, has impressed since being promoted to Thomas Tuchel’s senior squad in the summer, scoring twice in ten appearances.

After loan spells at Huddersfield, Ipswich and French side Lorient, Chalobah’s rise has been something of a surprise and his emotional response to scoring past Crystal Palace on his debut underlined his connection to the club.

He said: “It’s quite surreal. It’s a dream for me to sign a new long-term contract for my boyhood club and hopefully the dream continues.

“It’s been an unbelievable start to the season and something I never expected but it just shows that the hard work I’ve put in and going out on loans has paid off.

“I tried to impress the manager in pre-season and then take that into the games so it’s been good and consistency now is the key to keep those high levels.”

Chalobah’s four-and-a-half-year deal runs to the summer of 2026, extending his previous contract by three years.

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia added: “To see Trevoh joining so many of his fellow Academy graduates in the men’s first team is something we are exceptionally proud of as a club.

“When he scored in the first game of the Premier League season, it was an emotional moment for everyone involved in his progress to this point.

“His performances in the early months of the season as well as his attitude and professionalism have impressed us all and we are very pleased to be able to reward Trevoh’s progress with this new long-term contract.”
