Spain international Cesc Fabregas will be returning to the English Premier League next season after signing with Londoners Chelsea.

The 27-year old has put pen to paper on a five-year deal for an undisclosed fee although reports suggest it is in the region of 33 million euros.

Fabregas, who scored 50 times in 305 games for Arsenal during his previous spell in England, arrives from Barcelona where he failed to earn a regular midfield place in the team.

At Stamford Bridge Fabregas will wear the number-four shirt.
