Chelsea are discussing a new contract for defender Trevoh Chalobah after he impressed boss Thomas Tuchel.
The 22-year-old had been touted for a loan move this season but is now set to stay at Stamford Bridge.
Chalobah followed a strong pre-season by scoring a spectacular goal in the 3-0 win over Crystal Palace last Saturday.

Meanwhile, Blues defender Emerson Palmieri has joined Lyon on loan for the remainder of the season.
Lyon will pay a fee of around £420,000 for the 27-year-old Brazil-born Italy international, who can play at left-back or wing-back, who joined Chelsea from Roma in January 2018.
Emerson, who was part of Italy’s Euro 2020 winning squad, came off the bench in the Premier League opener against Crystal Palace, which was his 71st Chelsea appearance.
