Serbia midfielder Nemanja Matic claims he has accepted a four-year contract offer at Chelsea.
The 20-year-old was linked with Middlesbrough in the winter transfer window, while Tottenham and Sunderland have also been credited with an interest.
But, according to Matic, Chelsea have won the race and now the Blues must agree a deal with his current club MFK Kosice.
He told Dennik Sport: "I can confirm that Chelsea have offered me a four-year contract, which I have accepted.
"Now the clubs must come to an agreement."
Matic broke a metatarsal bone in the opening match of this summer's Under 21 European Championship following a challenge with Italy's Sebastian Giovinco.
