Chelsea finally complete £20m signing of Carney Chukwuemeka

Carney Chukwuemeka has been acquired by Chelsea for £20 million from Aston Villa

Just one day before the start of the new Premier League season, the Blues defeated Borussia Dortmund and Barcelona to get the midfielder’s services.

The 18-year-old earlier turned down a new contract at Villa, reportedly demanding £100,000 per week, and has now reached an agreement on a six-year contract with Stamford Bridge.

The England Under-19 international acknowledged that now that the transaction has been completed, he can now concentrate entirely on his game.


He told Chelsea’s website, “It’s been quite crazy, but I couldn’t get Chelsea out of my brain the last few days so I’m just glad and relieved that it’s all done.”

“I really can’t wait to get on the field, meet all the players, and attempt to win games and trophies with Chelsea,” I said, “I’m very excited.”

Only three of Chukwuemeka’s 14 appearances during the previous season were starts.

The teenage midfielder, whose parents are from Nigeria, was born in Austria but plays for England’s youth national team.
