Chelsea defender Levi Colwill has reportedly signed a new contract with the Blues, and is set to sign for Championship side Huddersfield Town on loan, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.

Colwill hasn’t been out on loan in his senior career yet, but is clearly highly-rated by Chelsea, who have tied him down to a contract until June 2025.
He’ll join a Huddersfield Town side that need additional strength in depth in their defence heading into the 2021/22 league campaign.
The Terriers endured a frustrating season last term, as they struggled for a positive run of results in the Championship, especially in the second half of the year.
That poor run of form saw Carlos Corberan’s side finish 20th in the second tier standings, and the club’s supporters will be eager to see their side challenge higher up the table heading into the new campaign.
Worryingly, Huddersfield conceded the most goals in the Championship last season, as they conceded 71 goals in total, which doesn’t make for the best of reading at all.
Yorkshire Live have recently claimed that Colwill is likely to be starting on a regular basis, with Chelsea being unlikely to send Colwill to a club that couldn’t offer him regular minutes.
If Colwill’s move to Huddersfield Town is to be confirmed in the near future, then he could be in line to make his competitive league debut in their season opener against Derby County on August 7th.
What was the score when Huddersfield Town last played these 25 teams?
This could be an excellent addition to the Huddersfield Town team.
Colwill has caught the eye with some strong performances for the Chelsea academy teams, and it’s good to see the Blues being willing to send him out on loan in search of regular minutes in first-team football.
Given that he’s also set to sign a contract extension with Chelsea before being loaned out, the Premier League side clearly see Colwill as a player that could potentially play a part for them in future seasons.
At the age of 18, he’s still got plenty of time to develop as a player, and Huddersfield Town will be hoping that he can make a positive impact whilst at the John Smith’s Stadium next term.
