Officially a Blue: See Saul Niguez's first pictures as a Chelsea player

Chelsea's summer transfer window activity came to a busy but ultimately fruitful end, as they managed to complete the signing of Saul Niguez on loan from Atletico Madrid. While the deal once looked to be dead in the water, a breakthrough was made in the talks between the two clubs and Chelsea just about managed to get the deal over the line, narrowly beating the transfer deadline. He joins Chelsea on a season long loan deal - which will cost the Blues €5million - while there is an option to buy for about £30million.

For the sake of time, the medicals were done and the deal was signed in Spain. But today, Saul traveled to London to join up with his new club, where he was officially unveiled as a Chelsea player. He posed with the Chelsea shirt and took photographs, as he made his first appearance in Chelsea colours!

Saul will be looking to provide good competition in a defensive/central midfield which contains top talents like Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic. The Spaniard is set to wear the jersey number 17, and will begin training with his new teammates ass early as tomorrow.

Good luck to Saul Niguez at Chelsea. Hopefully he impressed enough for the Blues to make the deal permanent.
