Chelsea tie down defender Trevoh Chalobah on a long term deal to 2026

Last update on.
Chalobah was born in Sierra Leone. She moved to London when she was eight years old and joined Chelsea.

Trevoh Chalobah, Chelsea's defender, has signed a new contract for four-and-a half years at the club.

The 22-year old has made 10 appearances this season for Thomas Tuchel's team at Stamford Bridge.

He said that signing a long-term contract was a dream. The deal will continue until 2026.

The Premier League debut of Chalobah was made on the first day of the season by a miracle goal at Crystal Palace.

Antonio Conte made the player a professional after loan spells at Ipswich and Lorient. The Sierra Leonean-born player was able to break into the first team and make five starts for league leaders.

"It's been an incredible start to the season, something I never expected. But it just proves that the hard work and going out on loans have paid off." said the ex-England Under-21 international.
