Chelsea FC announces the new contract of Levi Colwill, which will last six years with an option for one more year. He is one of the bets of the future for the Chelsea FC saga.
Colwill joined the Chelsea FC academy at the age of eight and has established himself as one of the most outstanding central defenders in European football, where he has been a key player for England to win the U-21 European Championship.
Levi has done the entire pre-season with the first team, under Mauricio Pochettino where he is now considered a player of the London club. “It was an easy decision, throughout my career, I have known what Chelsea is all about. I have spoken to the coach and he has given me the security, the confidence I needed. He has spoken to me not just as a player, but as a person. That makes all the difference,” Levi said after announcing his signing.
During his loan spell at Championship side Huddersfield Town in the 2021/22 season, he adapted well to the league. He made 32 appearances in all competitions where he reached the Championship play-off final. In the 2022/23 season, he joined Brighton and Hove Albion, where he had the opportunity to play 22 games and was one of the club’s benchmarks in defense. The team achieved sixth place in the Premier League, the highest position in the team’s history.
