It may not be the Chelsea summer signing that is greeted by the most fanfare, but it will nonetheless interest Blues fans to know that they have finalised the signing of Switzerland Under 16 international Miro Muheim from FC Zurich.

Not a great deal is known of Muheim, other than that he is a highly rated midfielder who plays international youth football for his native Switzerland and joins Chelsea from FC Zurich, the second club in the country’s largest city.
