Posted on | January 16, 2012 | No Comments

Chelsea have announced that they finally signed Gary Cahill after more than two weeks of negotiations.

There were some doubts over the move at a time as the England international demands were considered too high. Andre Villas Boas also declared that the player should lower his demands if he wants to play for Chelsea.

From unnoficial sources Cahill asked for £100000 a week wage and £4 millions signing on fee. On the other side Chelsea offered only a small increase to the £45000 a week he earned at Bolton but in the end have reach an agreement. The transfer sum is around £7 millions.

The England international started his career at Aston Villa where he made only 28 appearances in four years. During that time he was loaned twice at Burnley and Sheffield United.

In 2008 Cahill joined Bolton for a fee of around £5 millions. The 24 years old centreback made seven appearances for England and scored 1 goal.
