    And he has now penned a deal with the Ligue 1 outfit.

    Confirming Barkley as a Nice player this evening, the club posted a video to Twitter of him wearing their home shirt.

    In the bizarre announcement the midfielder can be seen checking himself out in the mirror dressed in his new colours.

    Barkley was then unveiled to the Nice fans ahead of their Ligue 1 clash against Monaco on Sunday.

    The midfielder joins a strong Premier League contingent in the South of France.

    Arsenal record signing Nicolas Pepe is currently on loan at Nice, as well as Brentford’s Mads Bech Sorensen and Fulham’s Joe Bryan.

    Ex-Gunner Aaaron Ramsey also joined the club over the summer after having his Juventus contract terminated.

    Leicester veteran Kasper Schmeichel signed for them recently too.

    While former Southampton pair Morgan Schneiderlin and Mario Lemina already played at the Allianz Riviera Stadium before this summer’s Prem influx.

    Barkley originally joined Chelsea for £15million in 2018 after leaving boyhood club Everton.

    But the midfielder underwhelmed following his arrival and failed to ever nail down a regular starting spot at Stamford Bridge.

    He played 100 times in total for the Blues, and was shipped out on loan to Aston Villa for the 2020/21 campaign.
