Mykhailo Mudryk finalised his move from Shakhtar Donetsk to Chelsea after agreeing personal terms with the club.
The Ukrainian international, who turned 22 earlier this month, has put pen to paper on an eight-and-a-half year contract with the Blues to seal his move to Stamford Bridge.
On making the move to west London, the player said: “I’m so happy to sign for Chelsea,’ Mudryk said after completing his move. “This is a huge club, in a fantastic league and it is a very attractive project for me at this stage of my career.
“I’m excited to meet my new team-mates and I’m looking forward to working and learning under Graham Potter and his staff.”
However, whilst Chelsea fans are no doubt keen to see the winger in action, Graham Potter – speaking ahead of Liverpool – admitted that Mudryk is not guaranteed to be a success in the Premier League:
“There is no guarantee anywhere,” Potter said in a press conference. “No magic formula that says this is going to work and this is how we see the future.
“With every decision you’ve got to make the best educated guess that you can. If you identify the right player and the right person there are huge upsides to it because you are developing and investing in him.
“If things go well you have a fantastic asset, and the club is secure in terms of the contract length. It’s a direction the club wants to go down and obviously I am supporting that as best I can.”
