Trevoh Chalobah signs Chelsea contract extension to hold the longest deal at the club.
Following a superb run of play for the Blues, Trevoh Chalobah has extended his contract with Chelsea, keeping him at Stamford Bridge until 2028.
The defender, who began playing for the team at the age of nine and rose through the ranks to earn a spot in the senior squad, has now signed a contract that keeps him with the Blues through at least June 2028, with a club option to extend to 2029.
In his 18 months as a senior player at Stamford Bridge, Chalobah has already made 43 appearances for the Blues, and he will be aiming for many more in the years to come.
Chalobah, a Cobham graduate who pursued a career in football after his older brother Nathaniel, has made 13 appearances this season across all competitions.
In the autumn, he contributed to back-to-back clean sheets in the Champions League against AC Milan as we overcame a rocky start in Europe to finish as group winners. Under Graham Potter, he has primarily played as the right-sided or centre defender in a back three.
The 23-year-senior old’s Chelsea career took off last season when, on his first outing at Stamford Bridge, he scored a stunning goal against Crystal Palace, falling to his knees in an impassioned celebration. He participated in 30 games during the 2021–2022 season, scoring his first Champions League goal against Juventus.
Chelsea chairman Todd Boehly and co-controlling owner Behdad Eghbali said:
‘We’re delighted that Trevoh will be extending his stay with Chelsea. He has been with us since childhood and has grown into an exceptional young player. He’s an important part of our men’s first-team squad and we’re excited to see what’s next for Trevoh at Chelsea.’
On signing his new deal, Chalobah said:
‘I’m over the moon to sign this contract. It’s been an honour every time I put the shirt on. I want to give my all and do anything for this club.
‘As everyone knows I’ve been here from a young age and to continue here is every kid’s dream. Whenever I get the chance, I’ll give my all for the club and look for the future ahead. I want to say thanks to God for this, without Him none of this would be possible. And just always believing. Thanks to my family as well and the club for trusting in me. I’ll now continue to give my all.’
