Chelsea set to reward defender Trevoh Chalobah with new deal after the breakout star solidifies his place in the first team this season

  • Trevoh Chalobah has won in Chelsea’s first team this season
  • The 22-year-old has made nine appearances and found the net twice
  • In August, Chelsea’s plan remained for the defender to go on loan
  • But after impressing this mandate, the Blues want to reward him with a new deal











Chelsea are expected to reward Trevoh Chalobah for his breakout season with a new contract.

The academy graduate won in the first team after having had a chance under Thomas Tuchel in the preseason, impressing with his performances against Bournemouth, Tottenham and Arsenal.

Chalobah’s current deal is set to expire in 2022 and the Blues are said to be keen to tie him up for the long haul.

Talks between the club and Chalobah representatives have been going on for some time and a new long-term contract is about to be struck, according to football.london.

The new deal is a turnaround for the defender, who joined Chelsea at the age of eight, as at the start of August he had his plan left to go on loan with several clubs across Europe reportedly interested.

But the 22-year-old’s remarkable Super Cup performance against Villareal cemented his place at Stamford Bridge.

Chalobah produced an almost flawless spectacle during the 120-minute final to help the Blues claim their second trophy under Tuchel.

Since then, the defender has made eight appearances this quarter, with Chelsea yet to concede a top-level open-play goal with him by his side.

But Chalobah has not only contributed to Chelsea’s campaign at the top of the table as he scored his first goal for the Blues in their first game of the season against Crystal Palace.

“When I scored I didn’t know what to do,” he told Sky Sports, delighted after the game. “I just fell to my knees and I was really crying… it was just an amazing time for me and my family.

“I play at Stamford Bridge, where I watched a lot of games, I was a ball catcher, I came to watch the games with my family, the Champions League nights… and now I finally play here. It’s incredible.’

He added another when he returned home in a 3-1 win over Southampton and his latest involvement came in Chelsea’s 7-0 shots against Norwich.
