Chelsea youngster Trevoh Chalobah is heading back to the Championship for the second straight season, joining Huddersfield Town on loan for the season.
As is customary, the younger of the Chalobahs, who recently turned 20 and still had two years left on his Chelsea contract, signed a three-year extension before heading out. Some reports had spoken of an option to buy being included in the loan deal as well however.

️ Siewert: “He is a player that fits straight into my system having the natural ability to play as a six."
Trevoh is eligible for this weekend’s game at QPR.
Chalobah, then still a teenager, featured regularly for a rather terrible Ipswich Town side that finished bottom of the Championship last season — no one in fact made more appearances than his 44, which was level with team minutes leader Luke Chambers. Coming down from the Premier League, Huddersfield should provide a somewhat higher level of challenge for him this season.
Comfortable playing in both midfield and defence, Chalobah was part of the initial group who flew over to Dublin for the start of Chelsea training camp this summer, but he returned to Cobham after the first game and had been working on sorting out his future ever since.
He’s got every physical and technical attribute needed for a top level player, and hopefully he’ll get to show them off for the Terriers under head coach Jan Siewert, who’s beginning his first full season as their head coach.
Good luck, Trevoh!
