Oscar has finalised a move after the Premier League leaders accepted an offer reportedly worth 60million euros.

Chelsea has announced that midfielder Oscar has agreed to join Chinese Super League club Shanghai SIPG. Following widespread speculation, the Brazil international has finalised a move after the Premier League leaders accepted an offer reportedly worth 60million Euros.

The 25-year-old will join the CSL outfit at the beginning of the January transfer window. Oscar moved to Stamford Bridge in 2012 from Internacional and won the Europa League, the EFL Cup and the Premier League in his first three seasons with the club.

He fell down the pecking order following the arrival of Antonio Conte as manager, however, and has only started one match since September. Real Madrid playmaker James Rodriguez has been linked with a switch to the Blues as a result of Oscar's departure.

"We thank Oscar for his wonderful service and wish him the very best of luck for the future," said the midfielder of Chelsea, who scored 38 times in 203 appearances for the club.

"I'm very happy to sign for SIPG. This is an important day for me, thankyou to everybody at SIPG," Oscar said in a brief video published on SIPG's website. I cannot wait to meet you and help the club to win new titles."
