Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta believes that Spanish compatriot Cesc Fabregas won't need time to settle back into life in the Premier League.

Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta has revealed that he is "very happy" that compatriot Cesc Fabregas has decided to move to Stamford Bridge.

Fabregas has signed a five-year deal with the Blues after leaving Barcelona, and Azpilicueta believes that the former Arsenal midfielder will have little problem in settling back into life in the Premier League.

The 24-year-old told El Mundo: "I have congratulated him and I am very happy because we have signed a great player who is going let us grow a lot collectively.

"I haven't had to tell him much about the Premier League because he knows English football perfectly."

Both Azpilicueta and Fabregas are currently representing Spain at the World Cup finals in Brazil.
