Reece James has signed a new six-year contract that sees him commit his future to Stamford Bridge until 2028. The wing-back has said he is ‘over the moon’ with the deal and believes the club has a bright future moving forwards.

James has been with the club since the age of six and extending his stay on better terms has been seen as a priority of the new hierarchy since completing their takeover earlier this year. The 22-year-old has already racked up 128 appearances for the Blues since his breakout season in 2019/20.

The Cobham product has reinforced his qualities this season and proved vital to Chelsea’s attacking and defensive impetus in the opening weeks of the season. While the Blues have had a slow start to this term, James, who has already won the Champions League, Club World Cup and UEFA Super League with the club, has his sights on winning many trophies.

Upon signing the deal, James said: “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. 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. I’d like to say a special thanks to the fans, I am here to stay and we have a bright future ahead of us.”

Chelsea’s ownership group are also pleased to have the deal over the line, with parties keen to see James continue at Stamford Bridge for years to come.

Todd Boehly, chairman, said: “We are thrilled to give Reece a new long-term contract at Chelsea. He is an outstanding player and a true Chelsea man, and we are all looking forward to watching him continue to flourish at Stamford Bridge.’

Behdad Eghbali and José E. Feliciano, co-controlling owners, added: “Reece is a very special footballer and one we love having at Chelsea under our ownership. His blend of physical and technical ability is a huge asset to our team now and for many years to come.”
