Chelsea Football Club has completed the signing of Cristian Cuevas from Chilean club O'Higgins.

The 18-year-old has signed a contract until 2018. He came through the youth ranks at O'Higgins before breaking into the first team and playing in the top flight in Chile.

At the FIFA Under-20 World Cup this summer he played in four of his nations' five games as Chile made it to the quarter-finals before losing to Ghana.

At 5ft 7in tall he plays primarily as a left-back but can also operate as a left-winger.
