Cahill Completes Chelsea Transfer

Posted: January 16, 2012 by GaryCRobertson in Bolton, Chelsea, Defence, England, English Premier League, Transfers

It took a while, but now Gary Cahill has been confirmed by Chelsea to have passed a medical and signed a contract in what has been believed to be a transfer fee somewhere in the region of £7m.

Seemingly Cahill passed the medical “with flying colours” on Saturday morning and then proceeded to watch his new teammates defeat Sunderland 1-0.

The stories claiming Cahill was holding out, only for money, were quite possibly false to disrupt the entire transfer.

Cahill had this to say about joining Chelsea:

“Chelsea is a massive club, it is a club that looks to win trophies season in season out and it is a big opportunity for me to be a part of that. Opportunities like this you can’t turn down.”

What’s more, Cahill is eligible to play in the FA Cup as Bolton kept him out of their squad which drew 2-2 against Macclesfield Town in the third round. Bonus.

In September 2011, Gary Cahill scored on his first competitive start for England (3-0 win vs Bulgaria). He is expected to be one of England’s first choice centre backs in the coming years.

Welcome to Chelsea, Gary Cahill.
