Joao Felix signs on loan for Chelsea


Chelsea FC have signed Atletico Madrid striker Joao Felix on loan for the rest of the season for a fee of 11 million euros (£9.7m).

Felix, 23, has also signed a one-year extension to his Atletico contract until June 2027.

The Portuguese skillful forward has been linked to Arsenal and Manchester United but his loan fee seem to have put them off

potter said "He's a quality player,"

"He will make a difference in the final third of the pitch and I'm looking forward to working with him.

"He's young, but still has lots of good experience and it's given us all a bit of a lift.

"I've been aware of the potential deal for a while but the injuries we've had maybe sharpened our focus on it.

"But it's nice to get him here and he's been training today, which is positive for us."

"Chelsea is one of the great teams in the world," said Felix.

" I hope to help the team reach their objectives. I am very, very happy to be here and very excited to play at Stamford Bridge."
