    Chelsea's new signing Hakim Ziyech made an impressive cameo on his return for Ajax.

    The Moroccan started against RKC Waalwijk after missing a number of games due to a calf injury.

    The star will move to Stamford Bridge in the summer for £37million and his new employers will have been impressed with what they saw.

    Ziyech had a 72% successful pass rate, completed two dribbles and had two shots before being replaced in the 46th minute, according to Goal.

    AFTER a long fortnight, football returns to Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

    Man Utd are the visitors as Chelsea look to end a run of three Premier League games without a victory.

    And Frank Lampard could be set to bring back Kepa between the sticks, according to reports.

    Kepa had been dropped in favour of Willy Caballero after a number of high-profile errors cost his side.

    However, Lampard could give the world's most expensive goalkeeper another shot after his stand-in failed to shine against Leicester.

    While the Blues have reportedly stepped up their pursuit to sign Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.

    Chelsea are set to battle against Utd and Liverpool for the 19-year-old's signature this summer.

    France Football claim Chelsea have already got the ball rolling by starting the “seduction business” with Sancho.

    And new Chelsea signing Hakim Ziyech has been hauled off at half-time in Ajax's Eredivisie game with RKC Waalwijk in what looks like fresh injury trouble for the Moroccan international.

    We'll have an update on the Moroccan's status as soon as it's available.

    Finally, Chelsea will look to seal another move ahead of the summer, this time acquiring Matias Vecino from Inter Milan for £23m.

    The Sunday Express report the club are close to completing a move for the 28-year-old Uruguayan.
