Premier League Champions Chelsea has announced the signing of Black Stars full back Baba Abdul Rahman.
The English club announced the deal mere moments after their 3-0 loss to Manchester City which laid bare their defensive frailties for all to see.
The full back joins the West London side in a deal believed to be worth £14m, but which has significant bonus clauses inserted that could see the deal rise to £20m.
Rahman joins from German side Augsburg, where he’s been one of the top performers and was adjudged one of the best left backs in the division last year.
Baba is a direct replacement for Filipe Luiz, who left Chelsea to move back to Atletico Madrid after just one year in England.
We are delighted to announce we have reached an agreement with FC Augsburg for the transfer of Abdul Baba Rahman… http://t.co/Bq1ntlVfOK
