Chelsea have announced midfielder Ross Barkley has left the club by mutual consent and is a free agent.
Barkley, who has 33 England caps but has not played for his country since 2019, has not appeared for Thomas Tuchel’s side this season.
The 28-year-old’s last game for Chelsea was a 2-1 win over Watford on the final day of last season, when he scored a 90th-minute winner.
Chelsea signed Barkley from Everton in January 2018 for 15 Million Pounds.
He has made 232 English Premier League appearances for Chelsea, Aston Villa; on loan, and Everton, and has 29 goals and 28 assists. Barkley made his English Premier League debut for Everton at the age of 17, but his career has stalled at Chelsea.
