Edouard Mendy’s jersey number revealed, sends message to Chelsea fans ahead West Brom match

The Blues confirmed the goalkeeper’s arrival from Rennes earlier today and he could be involved against West Brom this weekend.

The Senegal shot-stopper arrived from the Ligue 1 side in a £20m deal earlier today.

Meanwhile, the Senegalese international has penned a five-year deal at Stamford Bridge and will compete with Kepa Arrizabalaga for a starting spot between the posts in the season ahead.

Mendy said: “I am so excited to be joining Chelsea.

“It’s a dream for me to be a part of this exciting squad and to work with Frank Lampard and all of his coaching staff.

“I look forward to meeting my team-mates and can’t wait to get started.”

“I’ve been a Chelsea supporter since I was little. I adore this club,” Mendy told the Chelsea website.

“When I was 12 I had the chance with a past club I played for to go to Brighton, and we watched a match. I thought English football was amazing.

“We went into a shop and I saw the Chelsea shirt, this was about 2003 when Ranieri was the manager, and I bought this shirt. So I’ve always liked this club.”
