Chelsea complete deal for Brazilian teenager Santos

Chelsea have completed the signing of teenage midfielder Andrey Santos from Vasco da Gama.

Sky Sports News revealed earlier in the week that Chelsea had agreed a deal with Vasco to sign the midfielder and that the 18-year-old was undergoing a medical with the Blues.

Santos is the Blues' third January arrival after they confirmed the £35m signing of Monaco defender Benoit Badiashile on Thursday on a seven-and-a-half-year deal and acquired David Datro Fofana from Molde.

Santos ended his Vasco da Gama career with 38 appearances and eight goals.

He said: "It's a very big opportunity for me. This is a big club playing in big competitions like the Premier League, so I am very excited. The players here are so good and I am very happy to be here."
