London:

Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku completed his move to Chelsea on Thursday, describing his transfer to the Premier League club as a "dream come true."

The Anderlecht teenager's move to Stamford Bridge was confirmed on Chelsea's website after the two clubs agreed a fee for the 18-year-old, reportedly between £15-20 million.

"Amazing. It's a dream come true," Lukaku said on www.chelseafc.com.

"I dreamed to play here since I was 10 years old, thinking about shaking hands with all those players like John Terry and Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba."

"It's amazing to arrive here in a big club with big ambition. It was just what I was searching for."

Lukaku passed a medical at Chelsea last week and will be available for the club's Premier League meeting with West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.
