Chelsea have confirmed that young centre-back Trevoh Chalobah has put pen to paper on a new contract at Stamford Bridge.

The 22-year-old academy graduate has been a revelation at Stamford Bridge this season, impressing in each of his ten appearances in all competitions and even chipping in with two goals.

His previous deal was set to expire in 2023, but Chelsea wanted to reward Chalobah for his emergence as a genuine first-team player and talks over a new contract were opened last month.

Chalobah was always keen to stay at Stamford Bridge and the Blues took to their official website to confirm that he has committed to do so, inking fresh terms on a new four-and-a-half year contract to remain at the club until 2026.

What did Chalobah say?

"It’s quite surreal," Chalobah admitted. "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."
