Ross Barkley appeared to be in good shape as he continued training at Cobham this week following his transfer to Chelsea FC from Everton.

The 24-year-old England midfielder became the Blues’ first signing of the January transfer window on Friday when the west London side completed a deal to land him from Everton.

Barkley has signed a five-and-a-half year contract with Chelsea and will wear the number eight shirt for the Blues.

However, it is not yet clear exactly when he will be fully fit. Barkley has not featured at all for Everton this season due to a serious hamstring injury and Antonio Conte has not yet confirmed when he will be fit to make his debut for his new club.

Nevertheless, the midfielder seems to be in good shape as he trained with his new Chelsea team-mates again this week.

Chelsea posted the picture above on the club’s official Instagram account on Tuesday and wrote the caption: “@rossbarkley has been settling in well with his new Chelsea team mates! 🔵⚽️ #CFC #Chelsea.”

The west London side are now preparing for their home Premier League clash against Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The Blues are currently in third place as they try and get as close to Manchester City in the table as possible.
