Samuel Eto'o signed for Chelsea on Thursday on a one-year deal worth £7million and said: 'It wasn't a hard decision.'

The 32-year-old will be officially unveiled on Friday but underwent the formalities of a medical on Thursday morning before agreeing personal terms.

The four-time African Footballer of the Year who arrived in London on Wednesday night after taking the train from France to St Pancras Station added: 'I saw the qualities Chelsea have and I was very happy with Jose Mourinho before so when the opportunity came I was very happy to take it.

'I am very happy to be here but also anxious because I want to get playing as soon as possible.'

Jose Mourinho moved for Eto'o after two Chelsea bids for Manchester United's Wayne Rooney were rejected and the Premier League champions declared he was not for sale.

Mourinho is continuing to add to his galaxy of stars though as talks continued on Thursday with Porto's Christian Atsu.

The 23-year-old Ghana international is poised to undergo a medical this morning although the Portuguese side are hoping to agree a sell-on clause in the £3.5million transfer.
