- Midfielder joins on a season-long loan from Chelsea
- Comments from Head Coach Jan Siewert
Huddersfield Town has today completed the signing of Trevoh Chalobah on a season-long loan from Chelsea!
The 20-year-old joins the Terriers on the back of a full season of experience in the Sky Bet Championship with Ipswich Town and is eligible for this weekend’s game at Queens Park Rangers.
A midfielder who operates in the more defensive ‘number six’ role, Trevoh can also play in defence.
The 6t 3’ tall youngster, who has Captained England’s youth teams from Under-16 level to Under-20, was part of the Chelsea youth team that won the UEFA Youth League, two FA Youth Cups and the Under-18 Premier League. He was also part of the England side that won the 2017 UEFA European U19 Championships.
Huddersfield Town Head Coach Jan Siewert commented:
“I am very happy to welcome Trevoh to Huddersfield Town as I believe he is one of the top players in his age group.
“He is a player that fits straight into my system having the natural ability to play as a six. He’s a physical player, has a defensive mindset and takes great responsibility in supporting the defenders behind him, which frees up his fellow midfielders.
“He made a further step and developed during his loan spell at Ipswich Town last year and playing in this role, in my system, I believe he can make further steps and be a success with us.”
Trevoh will wear the number 8 shirt for Huddersfield Town.
