Chalobah pens new Chelsea deal

Chelsea have confirmed that defender Trevoh Chalobah has put pen-to-paper on a new long-term contract under June 2028.

The Blues graduate made his breakthrough for the club at the start of last season and he has since evolved into a key player.

Chalobah was out-of-favour under manager Thomas Tuchel for some time, but his fortunes have changed with the German's exit.

Under new boss Graham Potter, the central defender has been an ever-present figure and he has now penned a new contract.

He told the club's official website: "I'm over the moon to sign this contract. It's been an honour every time I put the shirt on. I want to give my all and do anything for this club."

Chalobah was linked with a loan move away from the club in the summer, but the hierarchy eventually decided to keep his services.

The move has proved a blessing in disguise. The 23-year-old has now become an undisputed starter under the tutelage of Potter.
