The talented centre-back spent last season on loan at Goodison Park and was a key player. In his first two seasons, the Frenchman vindicated his manager's trust by considerably growing in stature at Stamford Bridge.

The England Under-21 worldwide said that he is very excited and very proud to be with the first team.

The 25-year-old midfielder was sat alongside Lampard at the press conference and said: "It's wonderful to have a club legend as your coach but it's also quite tough".

Chelsea were second best against Kawasaki and the raucous home crowd got what they wanted when Brazilian striker Leandro Damiao took advantage of some sloppy Chelsea defending to head the victor four minutes from fulltime.
