Reece James has signed a new long-term contract at Chelsea Football Club that commits him to Stamford Bridge until at least the summer of 2025.
The defender, who turned 20 last month, has made 18 appearances for the Blues this season, scoring on his debut in our big
Carabao Cup victory against Grimsby Town. More memorably, his dramatic equaliser earned us a Champions League point against
Ajax in a thrilling 4-4 draw at Stamford Bridge in November.
James missed just one league game on loan in the Championship with Wigan last term and claimed a clean sweep of individual honours at their end-of-season awards before his return to SW6.
He suffered an ankle injury in the summer while playing for England Under-20s at the Toulon Tournament but remained in Frank Lampard’s plans despite a three-month spell on the sidelines and has started our past three games in all competitions.
