Cahill can't wait for his Blues debut

GARY Cahill cannot wait to start playing after his move to Chelsea. The deal to take the England defender from Bolton was held up amid wrangling over personal terms, meaning he was limited to a place in the stands during Saturday's clash with Martin O'Neill's Sunderland.

But having enjoyed a 1-0 win -- and the adulation of the Blues fans -- he is eager to be involved against Norwich City this weekend. "Sitting on the side and watching, you see how big this club is," Cahill said. "It was fantastic to get the win and it's a great atmosphere.

"When you're watching, you just want to go play."

Chelsea captain John Terry described Cahill as "a great addition", adding: "I'm looking forward to playing alongside him."

And the feeling is mutual, as Cahill continued: "I was over the moon to make my England debut, and coming in alongside John was eve more special."
