Baba Rahman, Chelsea’s longest-serving player, has departed the club.
The Ghana international has joined Greek club PAOK, ending an eight-year association with the club.

Rahman was the club’s second-longest serving player, after only Cesar Azpilicueta, who left for Atletico Madrid last week.

The Ghanaian joined Stamford Bridge from Augsburg in 2015 for a cost of roughly £ 14 million and was regarded as a potential prospect.

He only played 23 games for the Blues in all competitions in his first season, but that was the last time he ever played for them.

The left-back spent time on loan at Schalke before moving on to Reims, Mallorca, PAOK, and eventually two seasons in the Championship with Reading.

The 29-year-old’s contract is up in a year, but Chelsea have enabled him to return to PAOK on a free transfer.

“We wish Baba well as he begins the next chapter of his career,” read a brief statement on the club’s website on Monday.
Prior to his departure, Rahman was technically Chelsea’s longest-serving player, despite having not played for them in seven years.
