Chelsea have signed winger Noni Madueke from PSV Eindhoven, continuing their extravagant January transfer window spending.
Madueke, 20, rose to stardom in the Netherlands after leaving North London in 2018. He plays England Under-21 international.
He netted 20 goals in 80 appearances for PSV but has been battling an ankle injury this season.
Madueke, who was handed a seven-and-a-half-year deal with the option of a further 12 months, said: “I’m really pleased to sign with one of the best clubs in the world in Chelsea.
“I like to get the ball and be exciting, take players on, beat players, create a lot and score.
“To return to England and play in the Premier League is a dream forme and my family and I can’t wait to get started.
“It’s the best league in the world, best teams, best players. I’m absolutely buzzing to be a Blue.
“I am excited for what the future holds and to be at a club like this and winning at the highest level.”
Chelsea chairman Todd Boehly and co controlling owner Behdad Eghbali, who are believed to have dished out £35million to sign Madueke, added: “We’re delighted to bring Noni to Chelsea.
“He’s an exciting talent who has proven his quality over the past few years with PSV, playing in a strong European league, and we are thrilled he has chosen to join Chelsea for this next stage of his career.
“We are sure he will form an important part of our team.”
