Trevoh Chalobah has revealed his delight after signing a new long-term contract at Chelsea that will keep him at the club until 2026.

Chalobah spent the last three seasons out on loan at Ipswich, Huddersfield and Lorient respectively, but was given an opportunity to impress during this summer’s pre-season by Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel

After impressing the German boss, the 22-year-old was included in the west London club’s Premier League squad and has since played in six of Chelsea’s ten top flight matches so far this term. 

After signing the new deal, the academy graduate admitted that he didn’t expect the season to go the way it has, before setting his sights on what he wants to achieve for the rest of the campaign. 

‘It’s quite surreal. It’s a dream for me to sign a new long-term contract for my boyhood club and hopefully the dream continues,’ he said.

‘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.

‘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.’

Meanwhile, Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia added: ‘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 [against Crystal Palace], 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.’
