England international, Ross Barkley has officially completed his much-talked-about £15 million move away from Everton to Chelsea.

The Blues announced the transfer on Friday, confirming the 24-year-old midfielder had signed a five-and-a-half-year contract at Stamford Bridge.

The move was delayed due to Barkley's hamstring injury, but his improved condition has allowed Chelsea to complete a deal for the midfielder - who had just six months remaining on his contract.

After completing the move, Barkley said, "To be given a fresh start at a new club like Chelsea, it's unbelievable for me."

Chelsea had previously failed in the summer transfer window to get Barkley who interestingly has some Nigerian connection in his lineage.
