Rennes delighted with fee for Chelsea signing Mendy

Rennes are delighted with the business achieved over Edouard Mendy's move to Chelsea.

RMC says the deal was settled last night, with the goalkeeper due to be confirmed a Chelsea player today.

Mendy will sign a five-year contract and join Chelsea for an initial €24m fee plus a further €6m in bonuses.

Rennes management are pleased, having signed Mendy three years ago from Reims for €4m.

The Senegal international is France born and raised so doesn't require a UK work permit.
