  • Essien completes 24.4m Chelsea move

    Michael Essien has finally completed a 24.4m move from French club Lyon to Premiership champions Chelsea.

    Midfielder Essien, 22, has signed a five-year deal and becomes the Stamford Bridge club's record signing.

    "I wanted him because I was looking for a player to finish what we needed for a very strong squad in every position," said Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

    "We believe he is the best we can get for his position and he can play in anywhere in midfield."

    He added: "He's young, has a lot of ambition and he has the profile of the player we want.

    "I know the questions will be around the amount of money Chelsea had to spend to bring him here but that is the reality of football."

    Essien has secured a work permit and Chelsea are awaiting international clearance for him to play against Arsenal in the Premiership on Sunday.

    Chelsea have pursued Essien all summer, and had bids of 10m, 16.75m, 18m, 21m and 21m plus Tiago turned down.

    But the midfielder will now become the Blues' record signing, exceeding the 24m they paid Marseille for Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba last summer.

    Class player, let's see if he adjusts to the English game, though.

        Haha, there goes alot of money


        I think it is a ridiculous amount of money, like dude himself said: they paid more for me than Vieira and Drogba... That is really weird.
        Club are asking too much from Chelsea because of Abramovich, but Chelsea could have seen that coming.
