Hakim Ziyech trains with Chelsea for the first time

Summer arrival from Ajax Hakim Ziyech trains with Chelsea for the first time on Saturday afternoon.

New arrival Hakim Ziyech trained with Chelsea for the first time on Saturday afternoon.

The Morocco international, who has joined the Blues on a five-year contract from Ajax, was present at the club's Cobham base on Saturday but his new teammates were absent due to their clash with Sheffield United.

Chelsea's official website revealed that the attacker underwent "a light session" as he is not expected to officially join first-team training for a few weeks.

The 27-year-old enjoyed an impressive 2019-20 campaign for Ajax, contributing eight goals and 21 assists in 35 appearances in all competitions, including five assists in six Champions League outings.

Frank Lampard's side will not finish their current season until August as they are still in the Champions League, but Ziyech will be unable to turn out for new club until the 2020-21 campaign.
