Chelsea have announced they have reached an agreement with Anzhi Makhachkala for Willian subject to a work permit hearing on Wednesday.

ESPN learnt on Friday that Willian had opted to join Chelsea rather than Tottenham with the Blues agreeing a £30 million deal with Anzhi to sign the forward.

Chelsea moved for the Brazil international after it looked as though he was set to move to Spurs having undergone a medical with the North London club.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho intimated a deal was close in his press conference ahead of Monday's meeting with Manchester United while also insisting that Juan Mata is not for sale.
