Chelsea confirmed Wednesday it has re-acquired midfielder Nemanja Matic from Benfica.

The Blues were on the brink of agreeing a deal worth €25m for the Serb on Monday after holding talks with the Portuguese giants in Lisbon. Matic travelled to London on Tuesday to undergo a medical, and has now signed a five-and-a-half-year contract at Stamford Bridge according to Goal.com.

“I am very happy for this opportunity to be back at this club,” Matic told the club’s official website. “I feel very good because of that and just want to say I will give my best to help the team and make the Chelsea fans happy.”

The 26-year-old joined Chelsea for just €1.8m in 2009 but left two years later as part of the deal that brought David Luiz to west London in January 2011.

Jose Mourinho has long considered a top-class defensive midfielder his most urgent transfer target, and with his physique, technical ability and athleticism, Matic is believed to fit the bill perfectly.
