The right-back has become a mainstay at Chelsea since his first-team breakthrough in the 2019/20 season.

James made 37 appearances in all competitions that campaign and 47 the following season.

Last season he made 39 appearances, scoring six goals and providing 11 assists.

James has started all five of Chelsea’s Premier League games for which he has been available so far this season, missing only last Tuesday’s 2-1 defeat at Southampton.

He scored in the 2-2 home game against Tottenham and provided an assist in the 2-1 home win over Leicester.

James featured prominently during Chelsea’s victorious 2020-21 Champions League campaign, being capped 13 times for England since making his debut in a 3-0 win in a friendly against Wales in October 2020.

The defender is expected to be in Gareth Southgate’s squad for this winter’s World Cup in Qatar.
