Chelsea boss Graham Potter is relishing the opportunity of working with ‘exciting player’ Noni Madueke, whilst explaining what he can offer.
Madueke becomes the Blues’ sixth January recruit, after joining the club in a £30.5m deal from PSV Eindhoven on an eight-and-a-half year deal in the process.
The club have already brought several exciting young players with David Datro Fofana, Benoit Badiashile and Andrey Santos all drafted in.
Joao Felix was also been brought in on loan for the remainder of the season, swapping Atletico Madrid for Chelsea.
Chelsea have since secured the signing of 20-year-old Madueke, who is yet to make his debut for the club. Potter, though, has offered some insight into what his new signing can bring.
“Noni is a young player, an exciting player, left-footed wide player that can give us balance and competition in that area,” he told the club’s media.
“So he’s looking forward to starting his Chelsea career and we’re excited to have him. I think the supporters will really enjoy him.”

It has been confirmed that Madueke will wear the No.31 shirt for the Blues.
The jersey has been taken off Malang Sarr, who is currently on loan in Ligue 1 with Monaco.
Sarr could leave Stamford Bridge in the summer, after losing his number, despite playing 21 times last campaign.
Previous wearers of the shirt include Andreas Christensen, Fikayo Tomori and Rob Green.
Chelsea are back in action when they host Fulham in the west London derby at Stamford Bridge on Friday February 3.
