Trevoh Chalobah has extended his stay at Chelsea until June 2026.
Having found his place in the Chelsea squad under Thomas Tuchel, Trevoh Chalobah is the club’s newest success story.
Chalobah made his Premier League debut in the Blues’ opening game of the campaign against Crystal Palace. The 22-year-old continued his impressive performances for Chelsea, earning a new deal with his remarkable consistency.

On Thursday, Chelsea announced they have signed a new five-year deal with the young defender.
“It’s quite surreal,” Chalobah told the club website. “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.”
Chalobah, who joined Chelsea when he was 9, is the latest academy player to find his place in the Blues squad. The English defender follows the footsteps of players such as Reece James, Mason Mount, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Speaking after extending Chalobah’s contract, Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said: “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.”
