Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Ross Barkley from Everton for a reported fee of £15 million on a five-and-a-half year deal.

Barkley, who becomes Chelsea’s first signing of a January window, will wear the number 8 shirt recently worn by Frank Lampard and Oscar.

The 24-Year-old reportedly close to a move to the Blues last season but the plug was pulled at the last minute.

Upon signing for the Premier League champions, Barkley said: ‘I’m overwhelmed, I’m looking forward to it and I’m really excited to get started.

‘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.’

Club director Marina Granovskaia added: ‘Ross is a player we have long admired and are certain he will prove to be an important player for Chelsea. He possesses outstanding technical and physical attributes, matched with good experience of the Premier League and a strong desire to succeed at the highest level. We welcome him to the club and look forward to seeing him in action.’
