Morocco international Hakim Ziyech has signed a five-year contract at Chelsea, the club confirmed on Sunday.

The Ajax Amsterdam winger will officially join the Blues on July 1, having now agreed personal terms.

Chelsea announced earlier this month that they had agreed a £33m deal to bring the 26-year-old to Stamford Bridge at the end of the 2019-20 season.

Ziyech, who will become Frank Lampard’s first signing as Chelsea head coach, said on his imminent move to London: “I am delighted and proud to have signed for such a huge club as Chelsea.

“I am looking forward to next season and hope we can achieve great things together,” he concluded.

Ziyech has contributed directly to 140 goals in 162 appearances for Ajax Amsterdam in his four years at the club.
