  • Barkley spent eight years at Everton where he made over 150 appearances for the Toffees

Tottenham - who have often been mooted as potential suitors for Barkley - had been expected to reignite the interest they showed in the player last summer but ultimately made a decision to focus their attention elsewhere, according to Sky Sports.

The midfielder will wear the No. 8 shirt for his new club and will soon be available to play first-team football once again, following his lay-off through a hamstring injury sustained in the summer.

'I think the club decided on this investment also for his contract.

"I think that we are resigned and the club was resigned before I got here that we're going to lose Ross and I can't see that changing", said manager Sam Allardyce on Thursday.

Spurs have been long time admirers of the Everton man, but it now looks like they will miss out on the enigmatic 24-year-old.

Barkley is still recovering from his long-term injury which has ruled him out for the whole season so far, and Osman says the midfielder must prove his worth when he eventually returns to action.

Conte is desperate to reinforce a squad that has left him 16 points behind Manchester City in the Premier League.

Speaking ahead of Chelsea's FA Cup third-round tie at Norwich on Saturday, and prior to the deal being confirmed, Conte said: "We are talking about an English player, a young player". He has good prospects for Chelsea. He's very strong physically, good technique.

He now has a great chance to become a key player for one of the biggest clubs in Europe and England.

"We have to hope to recover him very quickly and have him for the rest of the season".

"He had a bad injury, he had surgery and he hasn't played for seven months".

Barkley has finally called an end to his Everton career, completing a £15m move to Stamford Bridge yesterday.
