Chukwemica to Chelsea on a six-year contract

English Premier League rivals Chelsea and Aston Villa announced on Tuesday that Chelsea have reached an agreement to sign English midfielder Karne Chokwemica from Villa.

Chelsea also signed American goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina from the Chicago Fire, a competitor in the American Professional League.

Chukwimica obtained permission from Villa to travel to London to discuss the personal terms of his contract and to undergo a medical examination. The 18-year-old made 12 appearances for Aston Villa in the Premier League last season and recently captained the England Under-19 team.

Media reports linked Chuquimica's name to joining Barcelona or Milan, earlier in the current transfer period.

Slonina, 18, will remain with Fire until the end of this year, on loan before moving to the London club under a six-year contract with Chelsea.
