Ross Barkley completes Chelsea move
Ross Barkley has completed a £15m transfer from Everton to Chelsea.
The 24-year-old has signed a contract until the end of the 2023-24 season at Stamford Bridge and will wear the number eight shirt.
“I’m overwhelmed, I’m looking forward to it and I’m really excited to get started,” Barkley told reporters.
“To be given a fresh start at a new club like Chelsea, it’s unbelievable for me.
“I’m looking forward to continuing where I left off at the end of last season and hoping to improve and add more goals to my game.”
The England international rejected a £35m move to Chelsea on deadline day last August but, with his Everton contract expiring in the summer, has now moved for a cut-price fee.
Barkley had not made an appearance for Everton this season due to a hamstring injury.
