Scott Parker has signed a 4 and a half year contract and will wear Chelsea's number 19 shirt. He is, however, not allowed to play against Charlton on 8th February as part of the deal. Parker, 23, joins from Charlton Athletic for a fee of exactly 10 million pounds. This includes all agents and Premier League fees, so 10 million in the exact figure paid out. Parker had been at Charlton since the age of 8!
So what happened to, "We don't want Abramovich's money and we won't even accept 15 million " ????
Rennes have also announced today that their 21 year old 'keeper Peter Cech will also be joining the blues at the end of this season.
Parker could make his debut at Blackburn this Sunday afternoon.
