Salah quits Blues for Giallorossi

Mohamed Salah has brought an unproductive 18-month spell with Chelsea to an end after joining Roma on a permanent basis on Wednesday.

The Egypt international arrived at Stamford Bridge in January 2014 from FC Basel and went on to make 10 Premier League appearances for the Blues during the second half of the season.

But Salah turned out just three times for the west Londoners in the league the following campaign, although he still received a championship winners' medal as they won the title in 2014/15, despite spending the final six months on loan with Fiorentina.

The 24-year-old winger then linked up with the Giallorossi on a season-long loan in August last year, with an option to make the move permanent, which Luciano Spalletti's side have now done.

A statement on the English club's official website read: "Chelsea Football Club thanks Mohamed for his service and wishes him well for the future."

Salah missed just four Serie A games for the Eternal City outfit last term, with his 14 goals in 34 outings helping them finish third in the standings to qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
