January 21, (THEWILL) – Chelsea have made Noni Madueke, their sixth signing of the January transfer window.
The Blues have reportedly spent £35 million (€40m) to secure the services of the England youth international, who previously spent time in the academies of London rivals Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur, before moving to the Netherlands.
Madueke has signed a seven-and-a-half-year deal at Stamford Bridge, with the option to extend it by a further 12 months. Chelsea’s interest in Madueke persisted despite the mega-money deal to land Mykhaylo Mudryk from Shakhtar Donetsk, as well as their loan deal for Joao Felix.
The young forward is excited to return to England and play in the English Premier League and is looking forward to the club’s vision for the future and winning at the highest level.
In conversation with the club’s website, Madueke expressed his happiness saying: “I’m really pleased to sign with one of the best clubs in the world in Chelsea”
