The 21-year-old put pen to paper on a five-year deal at Selhurst Park, as Chelsea accepted an offer that was ‘too good to refuse‘.

Guehi was unwilling to commit his future to Chelsea as he did not wish to stay as part of the loan army, so completed a permanent Crystal Palace transfer.

The highly rated academy graduate had previously spent two spell away from Stamford Bridge on loan, both with Swansea City, but it was thought that he would be set for a third before the Eagles landed Guehi on a permanent deal.

Chelsea have reportedly agreed a sell on fee and matching rights clause for Guehi in the transfer.

Upon signing for Palace, Guehi said:“I’m very excited. It’s a great opportunity for me to come to such a big club in the Premier League. I’m really excited to get going.

“(The club is taking) a really exciting direction with the new gaffer that’s come in. A lot of good young players are here and obviously such a stable club with top players really enticed me and made me want to come.”
