Chelsea agree Filipe Luis deal

Chelsea have reached an agreement with Atletico Madrid to sign Brazilian left-back Filipe Luis.

The 28-year-old, who is yet to agree personal terms at Stamford Bridge, is poised to become the Blues' second signing from Atletico in the last 24 hours after striker Diego Costa completed a transfer to London on Tuesday.

A statement published on Chelsea's official website read: " Chelsea Football Club can confirm an agreement has been reached with Atletico Madrid for the transfer of Filipe Luis."
