Kai Havertz and Armando Broja have reacted to Trevoh Chalobah’s new Chelsea contract.

Chalobah celebrated his fresh deal until 2028 via an emotional Instagram post, one that was met with love from his teammates and fans alike.

His new deal was announced on the club’s website earlier today.

His evolution into a significant member of the senior squad started at the beginning of last season.

Chalobah new contract deserved

After three successive loan spells, the defender earned a recall from Thomas Tuchel.

Tuchel took no time at all to imbed the centre-back into his team, by starting him in the UEFA Super Cup final.

Less than a week passed after that penalty shoot-out victory over Villarreal, and Chalobah was making his Premier League debut.

If the emotions weren’t already at maximum levels, they must’ve exploded on that sunny day at Stamford Bridge.

Chalobah converted his first league goal for the Blues in the 3-0 win against Crystal Palace.

It’s only been an upward trajectory since that moment for the Englishman.

He has played in an FA Cup and League final, made numerous Champions League appearances, and is now a regular in the top flight.

Whilst others around him have dipped in and out of form, Chalobah has remained an ever present at Chelsea.
