Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah has signed a new contract with the club until the summer of 2026. Chalobah made his first senior appearance this season when he scored in a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace. He has gone on to make a total of 10 appearances this season with head coach Thomas Tuchel praising the consistency of the young defender. Chalobah is the latest graduate from the youth team into the senior team following in the steps of Reece James, Mason Mount, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
“It’s quite surreal,” Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah said. “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 gone 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.”
“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.” Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said. “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.”
