Chelsea is pleased to confirm Richard Olise has signed a new one-year contract with the club, which includes a further year option.

A calm and composed right-sided defender, Olise joined the Blues as an Under-9 and has progressed through our Academy at Cobham.

He made his Under-18s debut during the 2021/22 campaign and featured 16 times last season, including an appearance in the UEFA Youth League against Juventus.

The 19-year-old has made the step up to our Under-21s side this term and made ten appearances for Mark Robinson’s side, three of which came in the Premier League 2 playoffs.

Congratulations, Richard!
