Chelsea defender, Reece James, has put pen to paper on a contract extension with the club.
James has signed a new deal that ties him to the club until 2027, it has been confirmed.
The right-back, who came through the Chelsea youth academy, has been rewarded for his excellent performances as a vital part of Thomas Tuchel’s team by being handed an improved, long-term deal by the Blues.
The 22-year-old is competing for a place in England’s starting XI for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar this year and will hope to enhance his chances of securing the right-back spot by continuing his strong performances for the London side.
“I am over the moon with my new contract and I’m thankful for the fans, the new ownership and everyone involved in the club,” James said.
“I cannot wait to see what the future holds, and I am sure we will have the chance of winning many trophies. I grew up supporting this club and I’ve been here since I was a six-year-old. I put pen to paper on a new deal because this is the club I want to be at.”
