Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah has committed his long-term future to the club after he signed a new and improved four-and-a-half-year deal following an impressive start to the season.
Chalobah, 22, has been one of the sweetest stories so far this season with his unexpected rise under Thomas Tuchel after the defender was touted to go on another loan before the summer transfer window passed by.
His performance against Villarreal in the Super Cup was followed up in the Premier League with outstanding performances in a Blues defence that has only conceded three goals in 10 league games so far in the 2020/21 campaign.
Goals against Crystal Palace on his debut and more recently Southampton just before the October international break has made Marina Granovskaia’s decision not to pay over the odds for Jules Kounde look a rather astute one.
football.london had exclusively revealed that Chalobah was set to sign a new deal with the west Londoners and now pen has been put to paper.
With the news out in the public domain, Chelsea fans were quick to congratulate the defender and make their next demand to Granovskaia and co. clear.
Here was the best of the reaction on Twitter to this news which has been met on the whole with a lot of warmth from the Chelsea faithful.
The well-known @AlexGoldberg_ put: ‘TREVMENDOUS, LET’S GOOOOOOO!’
@CFC_Wrld made an ambitious claim: ‘Best defender in the world.’
@CFCAzza97 stated: ‘Clear of Konate and didn’t cost us a penny.’
@CfcSheikh delivered his five-word verdict on this news: ‘Lets goo. Bright future ahead.’
Attentions then swiftly changed to the more serious matters regarding Antonio Rudiger’s and Andreas Christensen’s current predicaments.

@santanaman23 simply summed up his thoughts: ‘Christensen next.’
@Nan_Agyeman similarly wrote: ‘Rudiger next.’
Finally, @CFCARMY12 demanded: ‘Great now Sign Rudi and AC next !!’
