Chelsea new boy Gary Cahill is keen on making his mark for the North London side after spending 4 years as a Bolton Wanderer defender.

Roman Abramovich dipped once again into his wallet to finance the club’s first signing of the new year in the form 24-year old Gary Cahill from English side Bolton Wanderers. His transfer was not a surprise to many, considering the injury problems of Brazilian David Luiz and Ivanovic. He faces stiff competition in the heart of the Chelsea defense, but according to, “the former Aston Villa  player insists he is ready for whatever the critics throw at him, and he is used to battling to prove his worth.”

He told The People: “I’ll be under the microscope more now, especially when I make mistakes.

“I saw what was said on Match of the Day and people are entitled to their opinion. I don’t have a problem with that.

“Sometimes though if people don’t watch you every week they just see results and it affects their opinion.

“If people do criticise me here I won’t take it to heart, that’s for sure. All that will happen if people doubt me now is that I will prove them wrong.

“I’ve never had anything easy. Even when I have been with England’s younger age groups I was a third or fourth-choice selection.

“I’m ready for everything that comes with this new challenge.”

He might make his debut sooner than later, and he could prove to be a vital addition to Andre Villas-Boas’ side in their quest to find silverware this season. His move to a Champions’ League side, and away from a side that faces relegation from England’s top flight, increases his chances of being England’s 1st choice center-half in Euro 2012.
