Chelsea’s Trevoh Chalobah Pens New Contract

Deal Until 2026

Chalobah has made 10 appearances for Chelsea so far under Thomas Tuchel this season and has been a standout player as the club have taken a stranglehold in the Premier League title race. Incredibly, Chalobah’s Premier League debut only came on the opening day of the 2021/22 season in a home tie against Crystal Palace. Not only was this the youngster’s debut but he also got on the score sheet with an early contender for a goal of the season, as he put in an assured performance that made him look like he had been playing at this elite level for years.

Dream Come True

Speaking to the official Chelsea website, Chalobah spoke of his dreams coming true after signing the new long term deal: “It’s a dream for me to sign a new long-term contract for my boyhood club and hopefully the dream continues.”

Chalobah went on to speak of the start to the season and how happy he is that his hard work is really starting to pay off: “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 has paid off.”

Loan Spells Paid Off for Chelsea’s Trevor Chalobah

Not every player who is at a big club and goes out on loan finds success, but for Chalobah it seems that his time away from his boyhood club has been what has catapulted him into the Chelsea first team. Chalobah signed his first professional contact when the manager was the now Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte and then headed out on loan to Ipswich Town, Huddersfield Town and Lorient. But, now, he is a Chelsea first team regular looking towards some of the biggest prizes in football.
