Chelsea morning round-up: Bertrand leaves, Cuadrado on working with boss

A round up of news stories this morning related to Chelsea.

Southampton made their loan signing of Ryan Bertrand a permanent deal on transfer deadline day, as confirmed by FourFourTwo.

The left-back has been a consistent performer under Ronald Koeman this season and will be looking to push on.

He left Chelsea after finding himself behind Cesar Azpilicueta and Filipe Luis in the pecking order for his position.

Juan Cuadrado has told Sky Sports he’s ready for life at Chelsea.

The Colombian winger completed a big money move to the Blues from Fiorentina on transfer deadline day.

Andre Schurrle left the club to link up with Wolfsburg which seemingly made way for his arrival, with Mo Salah joining the Serie A club in exchange.

Cuadrado has been quoted by FourFourTwo suggesting Jose Mourinho was a key factor behind his decision to join the club.

The Portuguese coach has a reputation as being one of the best man managers in the world.

Cuadrado believes Mourinho can help him turn into a better player during his time at the West London club.
