  • Chelsea signed Portuguese attacker João Felix from Atletico Madrid on loan until the end of the season.
  • He made his debut on his second day against Fulham and was red carded and will now miss three games.
  • He is now taking his one month off to explore the beautiful tourist attractions in London.

Chelsea moved quickly in the transfer market to complete the loan signing of attacker João Felix from Spanish club Atletico Madrid, for a reported fee of £11m with no option to buy and will cover his full salary.

His debut did not go as he would have expected. Graham Potter started him from the get go. He was the liveliest attacker in the first half, until an over ambitious and reckless tackle led to his sending off in the second half.

His suspension will last for three games and about a month, with a return against West Ham in the London derby on February 11 expected, as revealed by Goal. He is using the time to explore the beautiful city of London.

Felix and James meet in London

Sports Brief earlier reported that Felix hailed Reece James as an amazing guy after completing his loan move to Chelsea and recollected a time the two met at a London restaurant.

It was earlier thought that James and Felix will take a long time before they are on the pitch together for the Blues but with the Portuguese's suspension and the defender's expected return from injury in February, they would play together.

The former Benfica star would also enjoy the presence of new signing Mykhaylo Mudryk in attack. The 22 year old Ukrainian joined the blues for a confirmed fee of €100m from Shakhtar Donetsk.
