At the start of this season, Trevoh Chalobah was regarded as a fringe player at Stamford Bridge and one whose development would most likely be aided by a spell away from the club on loan.
Howeevr, he was given a first start of the season in the opening Premier League game against Crystal Palace, scored, and since has become a favourite under Thomas Tuchel, helping form part of the defensive unit whose solidity has helped the side top the table.
He has started three more games again recently, has scored again, and now he looks set to be rewarded with a lucrative new deal.
His current contract ends in 2023, but the club have been in discussions with hs representatives for some time after offering fresh terms ,and it expected that he will put pen to paper on a contract extension in the coming weeks.
He picked up his first silverware as a Chelsea player when they lifted the European Super Cup.
