Chelsea sign left-back Baba Rahman on five-year deal

New Delhi: Premier League champions Chelsea on Sunday announced the signing of defender Baba Rahman from Augsburg.

The left-back moved to Stamford Bridge on a five-year deal to become the club's fifth summer signing.

Rahman arrives from last season's Bundesliga surprise package for an initial £14million, with over £6million in further potential bonus payments - depending on how many times he plays for his new club.

The 21-year-old switched clubs in a £14million deal, which also involves an additional £6million in potential bonus payments depending on the number of appearances made by Rahman for his new employers.

Rahman will have to compete with Cesar Azpilicueta for a place on the left of Chelsea's backline.

Rahman signed for Augsburg from Greuther Fürth in August 2014. He made 31 appearances for the Bundesliga club.
