Chelsea came a step closer to securing the signing of Oscar Dos Santos, the Brazilian wonder kid who has been behind so much speculation over the past fews days.

We reported yesterday that he would be undergoing his medical at Chelsea today, and that has been confirmed as a successful medical by Sky Sports today.

We can also confirm that there has been no problem with his work permit as reported and the deal is expected to be completed before the Olympics begins, but with the official announcement coming at the end of the Olympics, understandably so as the player can concentrate on the tournament.

The 20-year-old Brazilian midfielder is set to complete his move to Chelsea from Internacional for £25 million.

If you wish to scout our new signing, tune in to BBC One on Friday evening to watch Brazil’s friendly against Team Great Britain.
