Colwill signs new six-year deal at Chelsea

Levi Colwill has signed a new long-term deal at Chelsea.

The 20-year-old defender has signed a six-year deal with the option for a further year to stay at Stamford Bridge.

The England Under-21 international, who impressed on loan at Premier League rivals Brighton last term, has featured regularly during pre-season under Blues head coach Mauricio Pochettino.

"It's always been an easy decision," said Colwill.

"As I've grown up, all I've known is Chelsea. I've spoken with the manager and he's given me reassurance, that trust I needed.

"He's spoken with me not just as a player but a person. It's made a big difference."

Colwill, who this summer helped his country win the European Under-21 Championship, began training with Chelsea at the age of eight.
