DONE DEAL: Chalobah pens Chelsea deal ahead of Lorient move

Trevoh Chalobah has signed a new contract with Chelsea - and been sent on-loan to FC Lorient.

The versatile 21-year-old, who is equally comfortable in defence or midfield, has had two previous loan spells in the Championship with Ipswich Town and, most recently, Huddersfield Town, who he helped to retain their second-tier status last term.

Chalobah's first taste of European football now follows with a move to the French top-flight and newly-promoted FC Lorient, who finished as champions of the curtailed Ligue 2.

Les Merlus kick off the new season at home to Strasbourg at the weekend. Chalobah's new Chelsea contract commits him to the club until at least 2023.
