Hakim Ziyech has revealed Chelsea went the extra mile to buy him, after he played in Ajax’s bonkers 4-4 draw at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season.
The Moroccan said: “When you are a young guy you always want to play for a big club, in the Premier League of course.
“When I was young, the players that played here, it was always a big club so I am very happy and it means a lot.
“I was playing in the youth in Heerenveen and here was playing Drogba, Lampard, Terry, all those big names.
“We were always for Chelsea, and if you look at now, if you can play here it means a lot to me.
“It was a crazy game. If you were a neutral supporter it was a fantastic game. For us it was a little bit less because we were 4-1 up, but it was a crazy game.”
