Chelsea are set to offer Trevoh Chalobah a new contract after his impressive recent displays.

The 22-year-old has two years left on his current deal and Chelsea will now open contract talks with the defender, following discussions with head coach Thomas Tuchel.

Chalobah played in the European Super Cup win against Villarreal, and started and scored in the 3-0 win over Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday.

He has previously been on loan at Ipswich Town, Huddersfield Town and Lorient but is now expected to stay at Stamford Bridge this season.
