Noni Madueke: Chelsea confirm £35m arrival to make it six January signings
Chelsea have completed the signing of Noni Madueke from PSV Eindhoven on a long-term contract.
The 20-year-old has signed a seven-and-a-half-year contract at Chelsea, with a club option for a further year, after a fee of around £35 million was agreed between the clubs this week.
Madueke becomes Chelsea’s sixth signing of the transfer window following the January arrivals of David Datro Fofana, Benoit Badiashile, Andrey Santos, Joao Felix (loan) and Mykhailo Mudryk.
Following his arrival at Stamford Bridge, in his first interview, Madueke said: “I’m really pleased to sign with one of the best clubs in the world in Chelsea.
“To return to England and play in the Premier League is a dream for me and my family and I can’t wait to get started.
“I am excited for what the future holds, the owner’s vision for the future and to be at a club like this and winning at the highest level.”
Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali commented on the transfer, adding: “We’re delighted to bring Noni to Chelsea. He’s an exciting talent who has proven his quality over the past few years with PSV, playing in a strong European league, and we are thrilled he has chosen to join Chelsea for this next stage of his career.
“We are sure he will form an important part of our team.”
PSV boss Ruud van Nistelrooy also reacted to Madueke’s departure, admitting: “A mix of emotions. We lose a good player because of his departure. There was no turning back and there was a solid financial compensation. I can empathise with the interest of the club.
“Also because of the personal situation, but that’s up to him to tell about it. In view of the circumstances, we have decided to sell with the financial compensation.”
