Everton Sign Ghana Midfielder Christian Atsu

Everton have completed a deal to sign Ghana international Christian Atsu on a season-long loan.

The Merseysiders have already signed Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea for £28million this week, and have secured a deal for the 22-year-old.

Atsu was signed by Chelsea from Porto for £3.5m last summer, but spent the season at Vitesse Arnhem before impressing for Ghana at the World Cup.

Jose Mourinho is keen to loan his fringe players within the Premier League as well as abroad this season, with Ryan Bertrand also penning a season-long loan deal with Southampton earlier this week. That deal can become permanent for a £10million fee, should the Champions League winner impress in Ronald Koeman’s new look side.

Meanwhile, Gael Kakuta completed his loan move to Rayo Vallecano on Thursday.

Recent departures follow a summer where Chelsea have strengthened with £75million worth of talent.
