Chelsea have signed ex-Nice defender Malang Sarr on a five-year deal.

The 21-year-old Frenchman became a free agent when his Nice contract expired on 30 June and Chelsea have said he will spend the 2020-21 season out on loan.

Sarr is a France Under-21 international and made 119 appearances for Nice, scoring three goals.

He is Chelsea’s fourth signing of the summer and their second in two days after the arrival of left-back Ben Chilwell, 23, from Leicester.

Earlier in the year, the Blues signed winger Hakim Ziyech, 27, from Ajax and striker Timo Werner, 24, from RB Leipzig.
