Official: Chelsea Defender signs new 4-year contract

Academy defender Jake Clarke-Salter has signed a new four-year contract at the club.

The 19-year-old made his first team debut under Guus Hiddink in a victory at Aston Villa in April 2016 a few weeks before he picked up a third FA Youth Cup winner’s medal – a feat matched by only six other players in history, including his Chelsea team-mate Jay Dasilva.

Since joining Chelsea as an Under-9, Clarke-Salter has also won the UEFA Youth League twice. He spent last season on loan at League One side Bristol Rovers where he impressed during a season disrupted by injury.

A regular at youth international level, Clarke-Salter played an important role earlier this summer as England won the Under-20 World Cup in South Korea.
