Gary Cahill has passed his Chelsea medical and was in attendance at Stamford Bridge as the Blues beat Sunderland 1-0, The
It has been over two weeks since Bolton agreed a £7m fee with Chelsea for the England international and Cahill is finally on the verge of becoming a Chelsea player. Days of negotiations have seen reports of Cahill demanding huge wages from the Blues and Chelsea’s reluctance to offer the player any more than the salary he receives at the Reebok Stadium. The 26 year old’s deal now looks to be a formality after the medical was concluded at Chelsea’s Cobham training ground.
Cahill has seven England caps and will link up with England captain John Terry in the centre of the Chelsea defence. The Bolton defender is expected to make the deal permanent in the coming days and will be available for next Saturday’s game with Norwich City. Villas-Boas confirmed the medical after Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Sunderland and is looking forward to Cahill’s arrival.
The Chelsea boss said: ‘Gary passed his medical and should be our player soon’.
