LONDON -- Chelsea has completed the signing of Mohamed Salah, who is joining the Blues from FC Basel on a 5 1/2 year contract.

Salah, who scored against Chelsea in two Champions League group matches this season, is Jose Mourinho's third significant recruit in the January transfer window after Nemanja Matic and Bertrand Traore.

The 21-year-old Egypt winger arrives at Chelsea after the club sold midfielder Juan Mata to Manchester United for 37.1 million pounds ($61.2 million) on Saturday.

Chelsea did not reveal the fee for Salah but British media reported it in the region of 11 million pounds ($18.1 million).
