Newcastle United have officially completed the £6.2million signing of Chelsea winger Christian Atsu
The 25-year-old spent all last season on loan over at St James’ Park and netted five goals as Rafa Benitez’s side lifted the Championship title.
Atsu was just one of quite a few players out on loan away from Stamford Bridge, and had been rumored to be getting restless waiting for a Chelsea call up.
Atsu has signed a four-year deal, which makes him the club’s first signing of the summer.
Benitez said: ‘We are happy to sign a good player. He’s shown us that he’s a good professional and someone who is very keen to learn and improve.
‘Christian has been a key part of our promotion campaign and he wants to help us to build something for the future.’
Atsu joined the Blues for £3.5m from Porto back in 2013, however, he failed to make any senior appearance for Chelsea.
