Ziyech sends message over impending Chelsea move as final Ajax aim set

Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech has said that he is “very happy” after his summer move to Chelsea was confirmed on Thursday.

Having failed to make any new signings during the January transfer window, Blues boss Frank Lampard has acted quickly to confirm his first summer deal.

Thursday’s announcement came as Ziyech received double delight this week, making his comeback from a three-week injury absence with a 10-minute cameo against Vitesse in the KNVB Cup on Wednesday.

Taking to Instagram after the game, the Morocco international said he was pleased to have returned to action and posted a message to his soon-to-be employers.

He wrote: ” Happy to be fit again so I can enjoy these last months on the pitch, where I belong.

“Received a lot of warm and positive messages during my absence and I hope to create just a few more beautiful memories than we already have.

“Very happy with my next step, but first I have some unfinished business to handle.”

Ajax beat Vitesse 3-0 to progress to the semi-finals of the cup, where they will face FC Utrecht next month.

 

 

 

Ziyech will be hoping to add a triumph in that tournament, as well as another Eredivisie title, to his trophy cabinet before his move to West London.

Ajax are top of the Dutch first division, three points clear of AZ Alkmaar with nine games remaining.

Chelsea, meanwhile, are back in action on Monday following the Premier League’s winter break and face Manchester United in a key clash in the race for the top four.

Lampard’s side occupy fourth place and are six points ahead of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.
