Hakim Ziyech breaks silence on Chelsea transfer after agreeing personal terms

Hakim Ziyech says he is delighted to be joining Chelsea and is already looking forward to next season with the Blues.

Chelsea posted an update on the transfer on Sunday evening – revealing a five-year contract had now been agreed with the player.

Earlier this month the club announced a deal had been agreed with Ajax for the 26-year-old subject to those terms.

The transfer is estimated to cost around €40million, potentially rising to €44m (£36). Ziyech will join in the summer when the transfer window re-opens.

The latest update reads: "Chelsea Football Club can today confirm that Hakim Ziyech has agreed the terms of a five-year contract. The Moroccan international will remain at Ajax for the rest of this season before making the transfer to Stamford Bridge in the summer."
