Essien joins Chelsea

And the rich get richer.

After much speculation, Michael Essien is leaving Lyon, taking the cash, and joinng Chelsea, which is the hip thing to do these days. Everybody's doing it.

This could be a big year for Essien as Chelsea aim to repeat in the Premiership as well as compete in the Champions League - and Essien certainly won plenty with Lyon, so he should help - and possibly ending for the midfielder with Ghana's first appearance in a World Cup next summer. (Ghana looks pretty good to qualify.)
