The club confirmed on their official website that the England U-21 captain had agreed a new deal with the Blues, keeping the centre-back with the west London side until 2022. Indeed, the 21-year-old also now has a better chance of first-team football next season after moving to Championship side Birmingham for the year.
Although the Englishman won’t be playing top-flight football in the 2019/20 season, the Chelsea fans below are still happy about the opportunity the defender has been given to show off his talent in England for a club with a big reputation, as well as Clarke-Salter committing his future with the Blues.
Here is how some fans reacted on social media to the news…
Would’ve been nice to have seen him in pre season but good luck, Jake
