JUST IN: Chelsea young defender Chalobah pens new deal 

Chelsea young defender Trevoh Chalobah has signed a new four-and-a-half-year contract with the Blues. 

Chalobar has been impressive this season under Thomas Tuchel, making 10 appearances so far this term. The 22-year-old scored a memorable goal against Crystal Palace on his first appearance at Stamford Bridge. 

"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 told the club's official website. 

"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 gone 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."

Chalobah has spent three years on loan with Championship clubs Ipswich and Huddersfield town before heading to Ligue 1 side Lorient last season.
