Chelsea Football Club is delighted to confirm that Daniel Sturridge has agreed to join the club on a four-year contract.
He will join the first team squad for pre-season training next week when the players return from their summer break.
The 19-year-old previously played for Manchester City, where he first burst onto the first team scene in the 2007/08 season, scoring twice in four days in January for Sven Goran Eriksson's side, including an important equaliser at Derby County to earn a point.
No great surprise and there has been plenty said about the whole Sturridge 'situation' before. All that remains is to have the fee agreed - either by tribunal or if both clubs can settle on a figure.
I'll keep my eyes on this for any official comments from either Sturridge or the club about the move.
