Kalidou Koulibaly completes his £20m move to Al-Hilal after just one season at Chelsea as the defender becomes the latest star to join the Saudi league

Kalidou Koulibaly has left Chelsea to join Saudi Pro League club Al-Hilal.

The 32-year-old departs the Blues less than twelve months after joining the club from Napoli.

A statement on the club’s website thanked Koulibaly for his efforts at Stamford Bridge.

‘Kalidou Koulibaly has left Chelsea after completing a permanent transfer to Saudi Professional League side Al-Hilal. The centre-back arrived from Napoli last summer and made 32 appearances for the Blues during his sole campaign at Stamford Bridge.

‘The 32-year-old made his debut away at Everton and marked his first home game with a fantastic volley against Tottenham Hotspur. His other Chelsea goal also came in a London derby, away to Fulham.

‘Midway through the campaign, Koulibaly captained Senegal to the last 16 of the World Cup in Qatar; the defender scored a crucial winning goal to help his country overcome Ecuador and reach the knockout stage.

We would like to thank Kalidou for his contributions on and off the pitch during his time at Stamford Bridge and wish him well for the next stage of his career.’
