Official: Eto'o signed for Chelsea

Striker Samuel Eto'o has been confirmed as Chelsea's latest signin

The Cameroonian striker signed a one-year deal with the West London club after spending two-years at Anzhi Makhachkala.

Eto'o, 32, said "I am very happy to be here but also anxious because I want to get playing as soon as possible

"'It was not a hard decision. I saw the qualities Chelsea have, and I was very happy with Jose Mourinho before, so when the opportunity came, I was very happy to take it."

Chelsea were in the market for a striker and have recently been thwarted in their pursuit of Manchester United's Wayne Rooney.

Some reports suggested Eto'o would return to Inter Milan where he played under Chelsea boss Mourinho but the Blues have sealed the deal.

Anzhi Makhachkala are clearing high-priced earners off Their books as owner Suleyman Kerimov balances the books.
