Chelsea complete first transfer business since Todd Boehly takeover

helsea have completed their first piece of transfer business since Todd Boehly's takeover completed.

The club was effectively under a transfer embargo while the American businessman worked to purchase the Blues from former owner Roman Abramovich in a deal worth around £4.25billion, with the senior, youth and women’s teams all impacted and unable to even approve new contracts for players.

A week into his reign, Boehly has his first transfer under his belt with Chelsea Women signing Eve Perisset from Bordeaux. The defender signs a three-year contract for Emma Hayes' side.

Perisset told the club's official website: "It's a fantastic honour to join Chelsea and to be the first French female player to become a Blue! I am very thankful for the opportunity that has been given to me.

"The time was right for me to make this big move to London and join the English Super League and I cannot wait to meet the team and the fans later this summer at Kingsmeadow and at the famous Stamford Bridge!"

Hayes said: "Eve brings a wealth of experience and is a versatile player who is able to play in both full-back positions and midfield. A tenacious defender, with her mentality and professionalism we have no doubt she will complement the group well.

"We really look forward to welcoming Eve to the team later this summer as we head into the new season."
