Chelsea have confirmed defender Trevoh Chalobah has signed a new deal at the club, committing his future until 2028.
The 23-year-old, who has the option to extend for a further year, played a pivotal role for the Blues under former boss Thomas Tuchel.
Now a regular in the starting XI, Chalobah, has been with the Stamford Bridge side since Under-9 level, progressing through the academy.
The centre-back has featured eight times in the Premier League this season, including seven before the World Cup break.
“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,” Chalobah said.
“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.”
