Town Targeting Chelsea's Chalobah Thursday, 21st Jun 2018 14:54
TWTD understands the Blues are looking to sign Chelsea youngster Trevoh Chalobah on a season-long loan.
We understand the 18-year-old centre-half has already visited Playford Road to speak to Blues boss Paul Hurst but the clubs are still to agree the terms of the proposed switch.
Chalobah, the younger brother of Watford’s Nathaniel and an England U19s team-mate of Andre Dozzell, Tristan Nydam and Flynn Downes, is yet to make a senior appearance for Chelsea but was named among the subs for the FA Cup final in May.
Born in Freetown, Sierra Leone, Chalobah, who can also operate at right-back or in central midfield, has been capped by England at U16, U17 and U19 levels.
He joined Chelsea as an U9 and has won numerous honours at academy level, including the UEFA Youth League in 2015/16, the FA Youth Cup the same season and also in 2016/17 when he also picked up an U18 Premier League winner's medal.

Whatever happened to the lad who left Ipswich for Chelsea. Charlie Brown I think his name is. Kind of disappeared is space somewhere. Unfortunately this does happen at big clubs academies. Unless your a bit tasty you kind of disappear. Hope I’m wrong. But seriously what happened to him along with the lad who went West Ham
A young player who trained with the England squad before Russia: a Player who has played a role in Chelsea again winning the Youth cup & making the senior squad at the end of last season: I don't mind these type of player on loan: Hurst proved last season he has a eye for a Central midfielder as Godfrey from Norwich was 1 of the best players in league 1: I think we need a Centre Half, 2 wingers & a Forward as well as Trevor:
stokiehigh97 This is the Ipswich news page. Don' try to come on here come on here talking sense. Please stick to 'another loan, too old, too young, too Irish, too Danish or to just another unambitious signing' comments. We don't want positivity here thanks.
I’d like to see a more experienced CB, preferably not on loan. Building a team, with a young exciting new manager must surely be the desired option. Sure, supplement the squad with a couple of loans once the permanent window closes.
Well he certainly looks a baller in that video, with many strings to his bow. Would not be adverse to this at all. Seems to tick the boxes in terms of a footballing centre half. Likes to go to ground though, I see cards a plenty lol.
I'm sorry but reading some of these comments.... This is a Chelsea starlet who trained with England and we can have him for next to nothing for the season. We need 3-4 good, good players to go anywhere in this league. I'm not being harsh in saying that Smith & Woolfe are nowhere near as good as him, because they simply aren't.
Popeye... why does this not look good for Emmanuel ???..Primarily a centre half of which we need especially a ball playing one. As for others will you get it through your heads Hurst will not be given a 40 million war chest so good loans ( not journey men) & hungry lower league players are where we will be going, then hopefully Hurst Will then unlike McCarthy bring the best out of them & make the most of there strengths !!!
