David Luiz has expressed his delight at securing a return to Chelsea on deadline day.
Chelsea are understood to have paid a fee in the region of £32million to re-sign Luiz, who they sold to Paris Saint-Germain for £50million two years ago, with the centre-back signing a three-year deal.
After spending all summer attempting to bolster his defence, Blues boss Antonio Conte managed to sign Luiz and Fiorentina left-back Marcos Alonso, who cost £23million, on the final day of the transfer window.
Brazil international Luiz, 29, told the club’s website: “I’m delighted to return to Chelsea. We had a fantastic story during my first time at the club and I want to help the team and Antonio Conte achieve a lot of success.
“I always had a wonderful relationship with the fans and I am looking forward to wearing the blue shirt at Stamford Bridge once again.”
Welcome back, @DavidLuiz_4!
