Chelsea complete signing of Ross Barkley from Everton for £15million

Barkley spent eight years at Everton where he made over 150 appearances for the Toffees

Barkley, who had been with boyhood-club Everton since the age of 11, made a total of 179 appearances for the Toffees, scoring 27 goals in the process.

Ross Barkley has signed for Chelsea from Everton, the Premier League champions have announced.

"He has this great opportunity to play in a great club, with ambition and great targets, and also to put yourself in this new challenge".

"I'm overwhelmed, I'm looking forward to it and I'm really excited to get started", said Barkley, who has won 22 England caps.

"We have to look at what we bring in, what we can improve the side with and try to move on and make as many league points as we possibly can between now and the end of the season".

Conte hits back at 'senile' Mourinho
But I will still make a few. "For the other situation, I am repeating - there is a person who continues to look here". But when mention was made of the accusations against Conte , Mourinho said: "Did he?"

A hamstring injury at the beginning of the current campaign has kept him out since August, which means he is eligible to play for Chelsea in all four competitions.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce recently admitted he was resigned to losing Barkley during the January transfer window, even suggesting the midfielder's future had been decided before he took over, per David Prentice of the Liverpool Echo. He's very strong physically, good technique. Ross Barkley is a Chelsea player, good luck to him.

Speaking ahead of Chelsea's FA Cup third-round tie at Norwich on Saturday, and prior to the deal being confirmed, Conte said: "We are talking about an English player, a young player".

Conte urged caution over expectations for Barkley.

"It's a good prospect, but at the same time it will be very important to understand when he can recover from injury, because don't forget he had a bad injury and hasn't been playing for seven months". But that's not the case anymore, with Spurs apparently wanting to wait until the end of the season to sign him for free, while Chelsea ready to spend money now.
