Trevoh Chalobah has been very impressive in his breakthrough season for Chelsea, scoring on his Premier League debut in August coupled with some brilliant performances in defence.

The Chelsea academy graduate’s new contract runs till the summer of 2026 and speaking on his new contract 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 had 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.’

 

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.’

Chalobah has spent three years gaining experience on loan, in the Championship with the likes of Ipswich Town and Huddersfield Town, as well as In France where he played for Ligue 1 side, Lorient last season.

On the international stage, the promising defender has represented England’s youth teams up to Under-21 level.
