Trevoh Chalobah will spend the 2019-20 season on loan at EFL Championship side Huddersfield Town.

Prior to departing on loan, the Chelsea youngster has also signed a one-year extension, which will see him remain at Stamford Bridge until the summer of 2022.

The 20-year-old enjoyed huge success as part of Chelsea’s youth setup, where he won the UEFA Youth League and the FA Youth Cup in two consecutive seasons. Notably, during the 2017 campaign, he scored in the 7-1 thrashing of Tottenham Hotspur as well as the 5-1 second-leg victory over Manchester City in the final.

He spent last season on loan at Ipswich Town, making 44 appearances for the Tractor Boys, scoring two goals. Unfortunately, despite his best efforts, Ipswich was relegated to League One.

Head Coach, Jan Siewart had this to say upon Chalobah’s arrival:

“I am very happy to welcome Trevoh to Huddersfield Town as I believe he is one of the top players in his age group.”

“He is a player that fits straight into my system having the natural ability to play as a six. He’s a physical player, has a defensive mindset and takes great responsibility in supporting the defenders behind him, which frees up his fellow midfielders.”

“He made a further step and developed during his loan spell at Ipswich Town last year and playing in this role, in my system, I believe he can make further steps and be a success with us.”

Chalobah will wear the number eight shirt at the Championship side.

Good luck Trevoh.
