As expected, Chelsea have confirmed a late deadline day deal to sign Saul Niguez on loan from Atletico Madrid until the end of the season.
The Blues will pay an initial loan fee of around £3.4m and have the option to buy the 26-year-old midfielder for £30m (€35m) at the end of the season.
Saul will now fight for a place in the Chelsea midfield alongside top trio of N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic.
The Spain international is a product of the Atletico Madrid academy, and has scored 43 goals in 340 appearances for Atletico.
Chelsea confirmed the signing, thus: “We have completed the signing of Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan deal with an option for a permanent transfer at the end of the season.”
