Reece James Agrees New Deal With Chelsea

The improved terms and conditions will see the right-back become the club’s highest ever paid defender.

The transfer window has finally closed and what a deadline day to remember it was, with three new recruits heading to West London, but Chelsea still have some loose ends they want to tie up before we head into the busiest part of the season. 

Reece James has been with the Blues since 2006, only leaving once for a season-long loan away at Wigan in 2018/19, which was his final year not playing in the Blues’ senior team. 

His current contract signed in 2019 runs until 2025 but, after such formative and impressive years from the young right-back, the club are more than ready to reward him.
