Trevoh Chalobah has signed a new four-and-a-half-year contract at Chelsea following an impressive start to the season.
The young defender, who turned 22 in July, has played 10 times under Thomas Tuchel so far this season and has scored twice for the Blues.
On signing his new deal, which runs until summer 2026, Chalobah 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.”
Prior to his breakthrough this season, Chalobah had spent three years out on loan, in the Championship with Ipswich Town and Huddersfield Town, as well as abroad in Ligue 1 last season with Lorient.
