Andre Schurrle has left Chelsea and joined Wolfsburg in a £24million deal.

The German has signed a four-year contract believed to be worth £85,000 a week and his departure comes as Chelsea signed Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina for £27m.

There were fears that Schurrle’s move would not go through before the German transfer window shut at 5pm UK time.

A tweet from the Bundesliga club confirmed the move, saying: ‘Finally – pen has been put to paper! @Andre-Schuerrle makes the move from Chelsea to the Wolves. Contract until 2019.’

Schurrle has changed his Twitter biography to ‘VFL Wolfsburg’ and the move likely means Cuadrado will complete his move to Chelsea before Monday’s 11pm deadline.
