Sierra Leone-born and Chelsea academy starlet Trevoh Chalobah has signed a new three-and-a-half year contract with the premier league club.
Trevoh is the younger brother of Nathaniel Chalobah, who is now an England International. The young defender is still eligible to play for Sierra Leone, the country where he was born.
Chalobah, 18, who has featured regularly for club’s development squad and Under-19s this season, took to Twitter to announce his delight.
He told the club’s website, “Training with players like Eden Hazard and Antonio Rudiger, who plays in my position, is really good.”
“To be in the squad at the Etihad was a great experience,” he continued. “It was my first time involved in a Premier League match day with a big crowd – that’s the sort of stage you want to play on every week.”
Chalobah was born on 5th July 1999 in Freetown. The defender has already played at the international level for England U-19s, U-17s, and U-16s and has won the UEFA Youth League 2015/16; FA Youth Cup 2015/16, 2016/17; U18 Premier League 2016/17 all with Chelsea.
