Noni Madueke: Chelsea completes £30m signing of winger from PSV Eindhoven

He scored 21 goals in 77 appearances for the Dutch side and has four England Under-21s caps.

Chelsea has completed the signing of England Under-21s winger Noni Madueke from PSV Eindhoven in a move worth about £30.7m.

The 20-year-old joins on a seven-and-a-half-year contract, with the option to extend for a further year.

Madueke is the club’s second signing in five days, following Mykhailo Mudryk’s arrival in an £89m deal.

He is their sixth January signing and Transfermarkt puts their spending this month at 178.50m euros (£156m).

The Blues have also signed David Datro Fofana, Andrey Santos, and Benoit Badiashile, plus Joao Felix on loan, during the January transfer window.

It comes after a summer that saw them spend a Premier League record £270m – the second-highest summer spend by any club in the world after Real Madrid (£292m) in 2019.

“I’m really pleased to sign with one of the best clubs in the world,” Madueke told the club’s website.

“To return to England and play in the Premier League is a dream for me and my family and I can’t wait to get started.

“I am excited for what the future holds, the owner’s vision for the future, and to be at a club like this and winning at the highest level.”

Madueke came through the youth system at Crystal Palace and Tottenham before leaving England to move to the Netherlands and sign for PSV in 2018.

He scored 21 goals in 77 appearances for the Dutch side and has four England Under-21s caps.
