Sturridge secures Blues deal

Chelsea Football Club is delighted to confirm that Daniel Sturridge has agreed to join the club on a four-year contract. He will join the first team squad for pre-season training next week when the players return from their summer break.

The 19-year-old previously played for Manchester City, where he first burst onto the first team scene in the 2007/08 season, scoring twice in four days in January for Sven Goran Eriksson's side, including an important equaliser at Derby County to earn a point.

Within months he was well known among Chelsea supporters, scoring City's goal in the first leg of the FA Youth Cup Final, a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.

Absent through injury from the second leg, Daniel saw his team-mates eventually defeat us 3-1 on the night to take the trophy.

A nephew of former Derby forward Dean Sturridge, Daniel arrived at City's Academy in 2003 from Coventry, having previously trained with Aston Villa.

He graduated to the senior squad at the beginning of the 2006/07 season and after injuries hampered his speedy progress, a hat-trick in the reserves prompted a debut in February 2007 as a late substitute.

Last season he was a more regular fixture in and around Mark Hughes's squad, netting four times in 26 appearances, 10 of which were starts, and was voted City's Young Player of the Year.

Daniel has also represented England up to Under 20 level, where he has played alongside our own Ryan Bertrand, Jack Cork and Scott Sinclair.


Welcome Sturridge!

Two signings already, and with Zhirkov about to sign (Apparently) we are doing more than alright.

EDIT Just realised CJ beat me to the bite in transfer talk, Sorry about that

Hopefully he'll be a hit here at the Bridge. However, I think if he is going to be a success here, then he needs to sort out his attitude and ego.

I am pretty sure playing at Chelsea with fix these attitude problems. Let's not forget where he came from. What kind of players did he have to look up to? Robinho?!? F#%k off Robinho, F#%k off Robinho, F#%k off Robinho, F#%k off Robinho,!

Danny Sturridge has joined Chelsea for LESS money that he was offered to stay on at Manchester City.

The People says Sturridge, 19, has been branded 'greedy' by some after City leaked details of the figures he was supposedly looking for.

However, Sturridge put pen to paper on a contract worth around £35,000-a-week at Stamford Bridge, which is short of what City had put before him.
