Chelsea's signing of Mohamed Salah is official.

Chelsea fans can rest easy that their signing of Mohamed Salah is complete.

The Egyptian winger posted the above photo on his Twitter account this evening, posing with his new shirt displaying his number 15 squad number.

Chelsea announced the news of the completed transfer on their website this evening, writing: "The Egyptian international signed a five-and-a-half-year contract and will wear the number 15 shirt.

"A quick, inventive attacking-midfielder, Salah moves to Stamford Bridge having played against us twice for Basel in the group stages of this season's Champions League, when he scored in both matches, as well as in last season's Europa League, when he was also on target in the second leg of our semi-final.

"The 21-year-old's versatility ensures he is comfortable playing on either flank or occupying a more central role behind a striker."
