Alfie Gilchrist has signed a new two-year deal with Chelsea, including the option of a further 12-month extension.

Gilchrist joined the Academy as an Under-11 and moved through the age groups at Cobham with his impressive performances impressing a number of coaches at the club

The defender has enjoyed a breakthrough season with his boyhood club, making 12 appearances for Mauricio Pochettino’s CHELSEA side and he has now been rewarded with a new contract at the club.

‘Signing this contract at CHELSEA is a massive achievement for me and my family,’ said Gilchrist. ‘It was a no-brainer and every time I’ve signed a contract here it has felt nicer and nicer. But now I want to keep on pushing on and keep improving.’

Co-sporting directors Laurence Stewart and Paul Winstanley said: ‘We are delighted to give Alfie this new contract at Chelsea.

‘It has been a pleasure to see him continue his development within the club by breaking into the first-team squad this season. We are looking forward to seeing him progress further in the years to come.’

There have been so many coaches over the past few hours reveal that they are delighted that the defender has agreed a deal with Chelsea – he really is a talented lad that could go very far in the game.

He already has his foot in the door under Mauricio Pochettino and he will now need to push on and make more of an impact – especially as Thiago Silva could be leaving the club at the end of the season – opening the door for more game time for the lad.
