Gary Cahill is New Chelsea No. 24 – Signs from Bolton
In this football January transfer window we’ve already seen the move by Man Utd’s Darron Gibson to Everton and even heard wild rumors of a move to Man Utd by Chelsea’s Frank Lampard. In today’s news Gary Cahill has completed a move from Bolton Wanderers to Chelsea and if you’re a Blues fan we’d like to hear your views on this.
The move was announced by Chelsea FC today after the England international underwent a medical on Saturday and the fact that Sheffield-born Cahill finally signed will no doubt please Andre Villas-Boas who has been after Cahill for some time. The fee is thought to have been around £7 million according to BBC Sport. Gary Cahill went to Bolton in 2008 in a £5 million move from Sheffield Utd and made his debut as an England international in 2010 in a 4-0 win against Bulgaria. Cahill is on his way to Stamford Bridge at last and will be hoping to play his first game for the club against Norwich on Saturday.
Defender Cahill, 26, will also be eligible to play in the FA Cup 4th round against either MK Dons or Queens Park Rangers. It’s a big move for Cahill who said, “Chelsea is a massive club, it is a club that looks to win trophies season in season out and it is a big opportunity for me to be a part of that. Opportunities like this you can’t turn down,” according to Sky Sports. Cahill will be wearing shirt no. 24.
