Chelsea completed the signing of Ross Barkley from Everton on Friday after a failed move during the summer.

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill has hailed the signing of the 24-year-old and expects many great things from the former Everton star.

“I think it’s a great signing,” said Cahill. “If you look at the market in this day and age, it’s a snip for a player like him. I’ve played with him and trained with him, so I know what he is capable of and so does everybody else.

“He’s capable of whatever he wants. If you’re looking at attributes, has he got two good feet, is he strong, is he quick, can he finish, is he comfortable on the ball? He ticks all the boxes and now he’s just ready for a platform to go and express himself.

“This club will give him that, like it did me and like it did for other players, and it’s down to him to go and take it. It’s a very exciting signing and for the money that’s been paid, it has to be a bargain.”
