Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah.

The 21-year old has joined the Blues from Swiss club FC Basel, signing a five-and-a-half-year deal with the west London club.

The transfer fee for Salah, who starred for Basel in their two Champions League wins over Chelsea this season, is believed to be around £15million.

Salah told Chelsea's official website: "I'm very happy to sign for such a big club. I hope I can make the Chelsea supporters happy."

Salah is Jose Mourinho's third signing of the winter window, following Bertrand Traore and Nemanja Matic to Stamford Bridge, and becomes the first Egyptian to join the Blues.
