Abdul Rahman Baba

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.
