The 21-year-old, who can play either on the left wing or as a second striker, has signed a five-year deal at Stamford Bridge.

Atsu was named Porto's young player of the season in 2010/11, and enjoyed a profitable spell on loan at Rio Ave the following year.

He was part of Porto's Primeira Liga-winning squad last season, and has made 16 appearances for Ghana, scoring three goals.

Atsu jumped the gun on his transfer on Saturday, tweeting a picture of himself holding a Chelsea shirt.
