Chelsea clinch Willian deal as work permit granted

Willian has completed his move to Chelsea after securing a UK work permit today.

Willian has completed his move to Chelsea after securing a UK work permit today.

The Daily Mail says Willian has completed his £32million move to Chelsea after being granted a work permit.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho gave evidence on the Brazilian’s behalf for his hearing today. The 25-year-old had a medical at Stamford Bridge at the weekend. The Blues hijacked Tottenham’s bid to sign Willian from Anzhi Makhachkala last week.

Willian is not in the Super Cup squad - Chelsea face Bayern Munich in Prague on Friday night - so will have to wait until after the international break to make his debut. Chelsea's next fixture after Friday is their away trip to Everton on September 14.
