Chelsea sign left back Baba from Augsburg

BERLIN (Reuters) – Chelsea have signed Ghana left back Abdul Rahman Baba from Bundesliga club Augsburg, the German side said on Sunday.

British & German media reported that the English champions paid 20 million pounds ($31.29 million) for Baba.

"Abdul Rahman Baba made a huge leap in the past year for us," Augsburg CEO Stefan Reuter said on Twitter.

"It is not only a recognition for his work yet moreover ours when a top international club like Chelsea want to sign him."

The 21-year-old Ghana international joined Augsburg last year after two seasons at Greuther Fuerth.
