Chelsea and England upcoming left back, Ryan Bertrand, inks new five year deal

After receiving a call-up to the senior England squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers the Blues' left-back has also been rewarded for his fine club form with a new contract

Chelsea have confirmed that Ryan Bertrand has signed a new five-year deal with the club.
The left-back has been at the Blues since 2005, when he joined their academy from Gillingham, but did not make his debut until 2011 after five
separate loan spells to the lower leagues.
The 23-year-old is seen as a long-term replacement for full-back Ashley Cole but has recently been given a more attacking role on the left-wing, a position he played in his biggest game for Chelsea - the Champions League final, and his European debut, against Bayern Munich.
Bertrand has now made 15 starts for the Stamford Bridge outfit, adding four more appearances from the substitutes' bench, while playing a role in the club's impressive start to this season's Premier League.

The player's form and continued selection saw him make Stuart Pearce's Team GB Olympic squad for London 2012 this summer, before also being handed his England debut by Roy Hodgson in a friendly victory over Italy in August.

The Englishman has also now been called to the senior squad for the upcoming World Cup 2014 qualifiers with Moldova and Ukraine.

Bertrand had formerly represented the Three Lions across the youth age groups, and has since expressed his delight at making the step-up to the senior side.

Malouda misses out on Chelsea's Champions League Squad

Chelsea have announced their squad for the Champions League group stages, and it's missing a very familiar face. Last season, neither Romelu Lukaku nor Ryan Bertrand were included in the list, both victims of the bizarre club-trained/association trained UEFA policy that appears to be designed to favour associations which use B-teams over those whose primary mechanism of player development is via loans. This time, Bertrand makes it - it's Florent Malouda who misses out.

That doesn't come as much surprise, considering Malouda has been completely uninvolved all year and was left off Chelsea's Super Cup squad for 'technical reasons'. He'll probably end up on the Premier League squad, just because we have more open slots, but there's every chance he just gets loaned out to some team in France as well.

The full squad is as follows:
A List
1. Petr Cech 
2. Branislav Ivanovic
3. Ashley Cole
4. David Luiz
6. Oriol Romeu
7. Ramires
8. Frank Lampard
9. Fernando Torres
10. Juan Mata
11. Oscar
12. John Mikel Obi
13. Victor Moses
17. Eden Hazard 
19. Paulo Ferreira
21. Marko Marin
22. Ross Turnbull
23. Daniel Sturridge
24. Gary Cahill 
26. John Terry
28. Cesar Azpilicueta
34. Ryan Bertrand
35. Lucas Piazon

B List
46. Jamal Blackman
47. Billy Clifford
49. Aziz Deen-Conteh 
54. Todd Kane 
56. George Saville
58. Daniel Pappoe
60. Adam Phillip

Blue is for the B-List, which is for under-21s who've been with the squad for two years (i.e. not Lucas Piazon, who makes the main list), green is for club-trained players, of which we have one, and red is for association-trained players. We're limited to 22 senior spots because we've only got John Terry counting as club trained, which is laughable in light of Ryan Bertrand existing, but it's not a huge deal that we don't have a full squad. It's for six games, and we can mix things up later on. Remember that last year Bertrand didn't make the initial squad either, and he ended up starting in the final.
The Premier League squad should be far more straightforward. Chelsea have the requisite eight home-grown players, so there should be room for the likes of Malouda and Henrique Hilario. Assuming they're still around, of course.

Meireles departs for Fenerbahce

The 29-year-old portugese has decided to leave Stamford Bridge after the club accepted a offer from the Turkish giants and has signed a four-year contract with Aykut Kocaman's side

Raul's trademark celebrations and 
super goals will be missed!   
Chelsea midfielder Raul Meireles has left the club to join Turkish oufit Fenerbahce.

A fee has not been revealed but reports say the deal could be worth around £8 million, with Meireles signing a four-year deal at Sukru Saracoglu Stadium.

The Portugal international only made the move to Stamford Bridge from Liverpool before the transfer window closed last summer for a fee of £12 million.

Meireles made 42 appearances for The Blues last season, scoring twice and had been involved in every Premier League game for Chelsea this season, but was only used as a second half substitute in all three matches.

And the midfielder has now opted to join fellow former Liverpool team-mate Dirk Kuyt at the Turkish Super League club after failing to establish a regular place in the central midfield with John Obi Mikel, Frank Lampard and Ramires the favoured partnership for Chelsea.

The Porto-born midfielder was said to be unhappy with after the club sacked Andre Villas-Boas, the man who brought him to London.

The arrivals of Oscar, Eden Hazard and Marko Marin only fuelled speculation that he could leave the West London club with Roberto Di Matteo taking on the task of rebuilding Chelsea's squad and replacing them with younger talent.

The departures of Yossi Benayoun and Michael Essien on deadline day seemed to have quashed speculation that Meireles could leave Stamford Bridge but after Fenerbahce made their move earlier today, it would appear Meireles was surplus to requirements under the Italian.

Mourinho a father like firgure to me says the new Madrid Ghanian

The Ghanian hailed his former boss at Stamford Bridge, saying that his relationship with the Portuguese manager was the main reason behind his move to La Liga

Michael Essien has credited his season long loan move from Chelsea to Real Madrid to his special relationship with Jose Mourinho, who he sees as a father figure to him.

The pair originally worked together in London when the Portuguese trainer brought Essien to Stamford Bridge from Lyon in 2005 and the midfielder is now relishing the opportunity to work under his former mentor again.

"Everything happened so fast," reflected the 29-year-old at a press conference. "Mourinho called me and said he was ready to take me. I said yes immediately."

"That was more than enough for me to come here. I see him as a father because he was the one responsible for my move to Chelsea. We have a very good relationship, with a clear understanding of each other."

Essien has enjoyed several injury-laden campaigns at Stamford Bridge in recent years, struggling to only 14 appearances last season, something he is keen to change.

He added: "I have had some fitness problems in the past, but I'm strong. If I wasn't ready to play here in the first place, I wouldn't have signed on.

"Real Madrid have very, very good players, but I'm ready to feature anywhere Mourinho asks me to. It'll be a great feeling to win titles this way."

I came to Chelsea to win trophies alongside world-class players says the newly arrived Moses

The 21-year-old expressed delight at being given the chance to play with such an array of talent, after initially being surprised to hear of the club's interest in him

New Chelsea signing Victor Moses has revealed he moved to Stamford Bridge in order to win silverware, admitting it is an honour to play for the Champions League holders.

The 21-year-old had been the subject of prolonged speculation over the summer with reports constantly linking the winger with a transfer to west London, a deal that was officially completed on Friday.

The Nigerian admits the Blues' interest shocked him at first, but says he was delighted to make the switch to the reigning European champions, something he believes any player would have done.

"When I first heard that Chelsea had come in for me I was surprised, but I had a call from my agent saying they were really interested in me and what did I think," he told the club's official website. 

"I said they are the European champions and anyone would like to play there and now that everything is sorted, I am delighted to be here.

"I am happy to come back to London as I grew up here and it is a great honour to play for the club that won the Champions League."

Roman Abramovich has dug deep into his pockets this summer in a bid to avoid a repeat of a disappointing sixth-placed finish in the Premier League table last year, only qualifying for the Champions League as eventual winners.

Eden Hazard, Oscar, Marko Marin & Cesar Azpilicueta are among the names already brought in, as well as Moses, and the spending has paid off so far with Roberto Di Matteo's men sitting pretty on top of the table with three wins from their first three matches.

The former Wigan attacker says he is looking forward to working with some of the best players on the planet, while insisting he will do his best to add to the team in their hunt for titles.

"There are a lot of world-class players here and I am here to do my best for the team and to help them win more trophies," he added. 

"The club has done well for the past few years, they have achieved a lot, and I am delighted to be able to play with these world-class players.

"I just want to ask the fans to sit tight, there is more to come from Victor Moses and I hope to do my best for the club and that there are more trophies to come in the future."
