Kai Havertz has left Bayer Leverkusen to join Chelsea FC, the two clubs have announced.


The German international has put pen to paper on a five-year deal with the London side.

"I’ve been here so long with so many people – with coaches, teammates, staff and fans – and experienced wonderful things. You don’t just forget that by changing clubs,” said Havertz in a statement.

“I’d like to thank everybody at Leverkusen, who have helped and supported me over the ten years, from the bottom of my heart. I grew up here and became an adult here – as a player and also as a person. But the time has come for a new start. And I’m looking forward it," he continued.

According to reports, the 21-year-old has joined Chelsea in a deal worth €80 million plus a further €20 million in bonuses.

He played a total of 150 games for Leverkusen with 46 goals and 31 assists to his name.
