“I’m really pleased to sign with one of the best clubs in the world in Chelsea.
“To return to England and play in the Premier League is a dream for me and my family and I can’t wait to get started.
"I am excited for what the future holds, the owner’s vision for the future and to be at a club like this and winning at the highest level.”

Madueke was born in Barnet and came through the ranks at Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur before leaving England to move to the Netherlands and sign for PSV.

He broke into the PSV senior side in 2019, before becoming a regular the season after, netting an impressive seven goals in 24 league appearances.

He was announced by the club in the 22nd minute of their match against Crystal Palace and was unveiled at Stamford Bridge at half-time.

He participated in drills and ball work as he began to acclimatise to his new environment. Also training was loan signing, João Felix who was red-carded on his debut in the 2-1 loss to London neighbours, Fulham.
