LONDON (AP) — Chelsea says a deal has been struck with Atletico Madrid to sign defender Filipe Luis.

The Premier League club says the transfer is dependent on the 28-year-old Luis agreeing personal terms.

The Brazilian will be filling the void left by Ashley Cole, who was allowed to leave Stamford Bridge when his contract expired at the end of last season.

Chelsea has already raided Atletico Madrid to strengthen in the summer transfer window, Spain striker Diego Costa joining on a five-year contract on Tuesday.
