Fenerbahce have completed the signing of Chelsea midfielder Raul Meireles.

Meireles, 29, had made only one start in three Premier League games for Chelsea this season and was an unused substitute in the Super Cup defeat by Atletico Madrid.

The arrivals of the likes of Eden Hazard and Oscar had been an indication the European champions were looking in a different, younger direction.

A statement on the Premier League club's website read: "Chelsea Football Club thanks Raul for the part he played in such an historic and successful year, and wishes him well at his new club."
