Chelsea complete Salah signing
London: Chelsea have completed the signing of Basel`s Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah, the Premier League club said on their website on Sunday.
Salah has signed a five-and-a-half year contract with Chelsea and will wear the number 15 shirt.
"I`m very happy to sign for Chelsea, such a big club in the world. I hope I can make the Chelsea supporters happy and have a good career at the club for many years to come," Salah said in a statement.
Liverpool were also keen to sign the 21-year-old who came to attention in England during last season`s Europa League and Salah was a key figure in Basel`s two Champions League group-stage wins over Chelsea in the current campaign.
Salah became Chelsea`s second major signing of the January transfer window following the arrival of midfielder Nemanja Matic from Benfica. Spain midfielder Juan Mata has left Stamford Bridge to join Manchester United.
