Ipswich secure loan signing of rising Chelsea star

Ipswich Town have signed Chelsea starlet Trevoh Chalobah on a season-long loan.

Chelsea have sent the 18-year-old defender to the Championship to gain valuable experience with Town beating a host of Championship rivals to his signature.

Chalobah, brother of Watford’s Nathaniel, made the bench for Chelsea last season under Antonio Conte and is highly regarded at Stamford Bridge.


The young defender has been a serial winner with Chelsea at youth level, claiming the UEFA Youth League in 2015-16, the FA Youth Cup in 2015-16 and 2016-17 and the Under-18 Premier League in 2016-17.

He was also a member of the England Under-19 squad that won the 2017 European Championship when they beat Portugal in the final.

Ipswich are looking to mount a serious promotion challenge under new boss Paul Hurst next season after finishing 12th with Mick McCarthy in charge last campaign.
