Christian Atsu has confirmed what we've been hearing for days, that he's now a Chelsea FC player. The player tweeted the following picture this morning, confirming his move to the London club.
Blue is the colour. I'd like to thank my family and advisors for all the support Big season ahead.#cfc # Gh @ Vitesse pic.twitter.com/GQThNZiITA— Christian Atsu (@ChristianAtsu20) August 31, 2013
Atsu will reportedly meet up with several Chelsea teammates at Vitesse, spending the 2013/14 season in the Eredivisie. If you didn't already have enough reason to watch Dutch football this season, the addition of the promising Ghanaian is one more reason you should.
With the player already confirming the move and tweeting pictures of himself with a Chelsea kit, I'd assume it's simply a matter of time before we hear confirmation from the club. I'd also expect some work permit news from the Netherlands in the near future.
