New Chelsea signing Gary Cahill has insisted that he was not greedy during his drawn-out transfer to Stamford Bridge.

Rumours suggested that the England centre-back had asked for as much as £100,000 a week plus a £4.5m signing-on fee.

"It's disappointing when you see things in the press. You bite your lip because I didn't read one report that was correct," said the 26-year-old.

"It was upsetting, but my family and the clubs knew the real situation.

"It was really hard [to accept the accusation that I was greedy] because that's the perception I got."

Andre Villas-Boas confirmed that Cahill would be in the squad for this lunchtime's trip to Norwich City.
