Cesc Fabregas completes switch to Thierry Henry's AS Monaco

Cesc Fabregas has reunited with former Arsenal team-mate Thierry Henry after joining Monaco from Chelsea.

Chelsea have thanked the midfielder for his "wonderful service" in a statement that read: "Cesc Fabregas has today completed a permanent transfer to Monaco".

Cesc Fabregas played 303 times for Arsenal between 2003 and 2011, helping the club win the 2005 FA Cup.

Fabregas will be required to make an immediate impact for Henry's men, who now languish second from bottom of the Ligue 1 table and face the threat of relegation.

"Michy? I know him, we rubbed shoulders with Belgium, he is a player who can be interesting", Henry said.

Wow. I'm honoured to announce that I will be starting an exciting journey with this wonderfully historic Club. "I am very excited", he added.

Leeds United employee 'seen acting suspiciously' outside Derby County's training ground
And now, Derby have confirmed it was in fact a member of Leeds' staff found lurking outside the Rams' training ground. We actually caught the journalists doing it, we banned them for two days, and then everyone defended them stoically.

Do you think Fabregas made the right decision to join Monaco?

The Spaniard as joined the French club on a three-and-a-half year contract.

The original plan was for Chelsea to only let Fabregas go when replacements have been found.

Leandro Parades and Nicolo Barella are the two players who have been most closely linked with a move to Stamford Bridge, but the question remains, which will we sign - or will we even sign both? But I really wanted to wear Monegasque colors so I spontaneously proposed to the club to make every effort to evolve in Monaco.

The Zenit St-Petersburg midfielder has scored 10 goals and grabbed 15 assists during his time in Russian Federation.

But a move for midfielder William Vainqueur from Turkish club Antalyaspor fell through, after he failed a medical due to a calf problem.
