England: Reece James on new Chelsea contract until 2028


Chelsea have secured young English international player Reece James until 2028, offering the increasingly influential right-back a new contract that runs for the next six seasons.

“We are delighted to give Reece this new long-term contract with Chelsea. He is a great footballer and a true Chelsea player and we are all looking forward to seeing him continue to flourish at Stamford Bridge.” club president, American Todd Boehly.

James, 22, who has already won 13 caps, arrived at the club at the age of six, having been launched into the team by Frank Lampard: now, he has been an important element since German Thomas Tuchel joined the team, with last season he scored six goals and made 10 assists.

“His talent, the quality of his crosses, his positioning and his athletic qualities mean he is as comfortable in the middle as he is in a three-man central defender, either as a winger or as a full-back,” the Blues added in a statement. .

The athlete, on the other hand, admitted to being “amazed with the new contract”, revealing himself to be looking forward to the future, in the certainty that he will “win many trophies” for the club.

This summer, Chelsea was the club that spent the most on signings in the Premier League, highlighting the more than 80 million euros paid by Frenchman Wesley Fofana.

Even so, the London team is having a shaky start to the season, with just 10 points in six matches that earn them sixth place, five points behind leaders Arsenal.
