Chelsea set to announce £15m signing of English attacking midfielder

Chelsea complete the £15million signing of Ross Barkley on a five-and-a-half-year deal

Barkley subsequently underwent surgery on the hamstring injury which has prevented him from making a single appearance this season but is reported to have undertaken a medical ahead of a £15million deal.

The England global nearly joined the Premier League champions in the summer, only for the transfer to collapse at the last minute.

Defending champions Chelsea had agreed a £35m fee with the Toffees last August but the move fell apart.

Ross Barkley will wear the No. 8 shirt, once worn art Stamford Bridge by one of his heroes, Frank Lampard.

ESPN at it again: Trump's 'af***ing stupid person'
ESPN declined to comment to Sporting News about Nolan, but is known to handle controversial situations on a case-by-case basis. Nolan said that Trump was a "fucking stupid person" on Viceland's "Desus & Mero" talk show on Wednesday.

'To be given a fresh start at a new club like Chelsea, it's unbelievable for me.

Barkley said he wanted to get fit and then reassess his future in this transfer window.

Spurs have been long time admirers of the Everton man, but it now looks like they will miss out on the enigmatic 24-year-old.

Conte is desperate to reinforce a squad that has left him 16 points behind Manchester City in the Premier League.

Ice, freezing rain possible Sunday
As the cold clears out some chances for rain will move in starting Monday night, when a 30 percent chance is expected. It was so cold that SCE&G reported its customers set a new electricity usage record.

Blues chief Conte said: "We are talking about an English player, a young player, with good prospects for Chelsea". He possesses outstanding technical and physical attributes, matched with good experience of the Premier League and a strong desire to succeed at the highest level. He's a good prospect.

While personally I'm not all that enthused about Barkley as a player, the price, if Law is correct, could be as low as £15m, which is absolute peanuts in today's market, especially for a young, homegrown player who a few years ago was going to be the next greatest thing. Barkley is in the final six-months of his contract at Everton and will thus leave on the cheap with Everton deciding to cash in rather than losing the player in the summer for nothing.

"I've [managed teams who have] played against him a couple of times and he's been terrific and killed us on a couple of occasions".
