Atsu swaps Chelsea for Everton

Everton have now confirmed the season-long loan signing of Chelsea winger Christian Atsu.

After some protracting discussions regarding the move the deal was wrapped up very quickly on Wednesday once news that his work permit had been agreed.

Atsu then promptly completed a medical with the deal finalised last night.

The 22-year-old Ghana International spent last season on loan with Vitesse Arnhem after making the move to Chelsea for 5million and has impressed many with his performances at the World Cup in Brazil and Martinez believes he will offer a new option to Everton's attacking front-line.

'He will excite fans because he brings something completely different and a different way of playing to what we've got in the squad. Everton gaffer Roberto Martinez told The Echo.

He continued: 'He's a left-footed player who loves taking people on and he's got a really good understanding of the game for such a young man.

'He also brings extra competition in a position in which we felt we needed a player full of desire and hunger, who really wants to make things happen in the final third of the pitch.

'Christian is a player who fits in with the culture and the way we want to play. He's a very gifted technical footballer and he's got the right personality and character to fit in with the group, which is vital.'
