    Chelsea confirm signing of Matic

    Post by Quiver on Tue Aug 18, 2009 10:54 pm

    Chelsea have signed central midfielder Nemanja Matic from Slovakian club MFK Kosice on a four-year deal.

    The 21-year-old, who has two full Serbia caps, completed his move to Stamford Bridge on Monday in a deal that is thought to be worth £1.5m.

    Matjic is currently sidelined because of the broken metatarsal that ended his Under-21 European Championship campaign in Sweden after only one game in June.

    "I know a lot about Chelsea, I have been following them," he said.

    MFK president Blazej Podolak added that the deal was rubber-stamped because "the money does not come in instalments but immediately".

    Matic recently underwent surgery and had a metal plate inserted into his foot after breaking his foot against Italy.

    Sunderland and Tottenham were also understood to be tracking the player.
