Juliano Belletti shook hands on a two-year contract with Chelsea yesterday.

The Brazilian has signed a deal worth £35,000-a-week, which includes the option of a further 12 months, after Barcelona accepted Chelsea's £4 million offer on Thursday night.

Chelsea were alerted to his availability when Newcastle declared an interest. Blues boss Jose Mourinho has been desperate for a new right-back after losing faith in Paulo Ferreira and Glen Johnson.
