Newcastle complete the signing of Chelsea star

Championship winners Newcastle United have completed the signing of Chelsea star and Ghanaian international Christian Atsu on a four-year permanent deal for an unknown fee.

Astu joined the Blues in 2013 but failed to make any appearance for the London side. He spent most of his time on loan spells to Vitesse Arnhem, Everton, Bournemouth and Malaga.

The 25-year-old winger spent the season on loan with the Magpies where he netted five goals in 35 appearances.

"We are happy to sign a good player. Christian has been a key part of our promotion campaign and he wants to help us to build something for the future," said Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez.
