Chelsea has completed the January signing of Ross Barkley from Everton in a £15 million move.
It would be recalled that Barkley almost joined Chelsea during the summer transfer window but pulled out of a proposed deal after getting cold feet on deadline day back in late August.
Chelsea have now completed the formalities with the Blues announcing on their website that Barkley has joined the club on a five-and-a-half-year contract and will wear the number 8 shirt.
The precise fee hasn’t been disclosed but the reports claim Chelsea will pay just £15m, which is a bargain in today’s market for a player of Barkley’s quality but Everton had little choice but to cash-in given he had just 6 months left on his contract.
