Christian Atsu: Has joined Chelsea from Porto

Atusu has joined the Blues on a five-year-contract for a reported £3.5m fee and will be loaned out to Vitesse Arnhem for the rest of the season.

The Ghana international is a left-sided player who can play as a winger or second striker.

Atsu joined Porto in January 2010 from Cheetah FC and finished the season with the club's Youth Player of the Season award.

Andre Villas-Boas included him in Porto's senior side for the first time in the same season but he remained on the bench.

Atsu spent the 2011/12 season on loan with Rio Ave where he made 30 appearances and scored six goals, earning him the Player of the Season gong.

The 21-year-old broke into Porto's first team last term, turning out 17 times in the league and also played in a Champions League last-16 tie with Malaga.

Ghana called Atsu into their senior side in 2012 and he has been a regular since, scoring in the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
