Chelsea Fan Goes Viral After Announces Himself as New Signing
A Chelsea fan hilariously announced himself as the club's newest signing as he poked fun at their slow transfer work this summer.
Blues supporters appear to be growing increasingly frustrated with their club's transfer dealings so far this summer as they are consistently linked with new signings, but fail to complete any of note so far.
The most high profile player was Romelu Lukaku, who was regularly linked with a return to Chelsea and, at one time, appeared set to join Antonio Conte's squad before going to Manchester United earlier this week.
Antonio Rüdiger has signed since then, following on from the arrival of former Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero on a free transfer, but that isn't really the kind of signing Chelsea fans want.
So, in good spirit, Blues supporter Luke Newton has tweeted his own signing news on Twitter and the reaction has sent it viral on social media:

Fair play to Chelsea fans for getting behind this - if they can't talk about a serious signing then why not have a laugh about a fake one?
Chelsea fans, what do you make of your transfer business thus far? Who will you go after now?
