EXCL: Lavia to Chelsea 'here we go' plus another CFC signing close, unnamed club in for Kolo Muani, why Maguire deal has collapsed, and more

Romeo Lavia to Chelsea ‘here we go’ - and Michael Olise could be next
One more ‘here we go’ for Chelsea - Romeo Lavia’s move to Stamford Bridge is a done deal. It was completed during the night after a meeting between Chelsea and Southampton to discuss the final details, with the structure of the deal now agreed. It’s £53m guaranteed to Southampton plus £5m in add-ons.
Congratulations to Chelsea because they’re signing a fantastic talent, and of course congratulations to the player because it’s a big move, but also congratulations to Southampton - despite being in the Championship they’re doing very well with player sales. Despite their relegation, they’re making big money from sales and only letting their stars go for the right price.
