Chelsea fans have taken to social media in a delighted mood, after the club announced a deal to bring former fan favourite David Luiz back to the club.

The 29-year-old Brazilian left Stamford Bridge for French champions PSG, two years ago in a £50m deal which was a world record fee for a defender.

But after a short stint in Ligue 1, the flamboyant centre-back returns to the club which he won a Champions League medal with back in 2012.

It’s believed that Chelsea paid PSG a fee in the region of £30m, to sign Luiz, as Blues boss, Antonio Conte signed a defender which he so desperately craved.

All summer Chelsea were linked with moves for Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci, and Napoli’s highly-rated centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly, but Conte, fooled us all, by bringing a former face back to Stamford Bridge.

Judging by the reaction on Twitter, Chelsea fans are absolutely delighted.
