David Luiz has completed his move from Paris Saint-Germain to Chelsea, signing a three-year contract at Stamford Bridge. The Brazilian defender previously played for the Blues from 2011 until 2014 before he spent two seasons in the French capital.
However, Luiz has fallen down the pecking order at the Parc des Princes since the arrival of new coach Unai Emery and has revealed he is looking forward to making his second debut for Chelsea.
"I'm delighted to return to Chelsea," he explained to the club's official website. "We had a fantastic story during my first time at the club and I want to help the team and Antonio Conte achieve a lot of success.
"I always had a wonderful relationship with the fans and I am looking forward to wearing the blue shirt at Stamford Bridge once again."
Since the first time he left Chelsea, Luiz has enjoyed two fruitful seasons with Paris Saint-Germain, winning a host of honours and helping the Parisians to become the dominant force in France. The 29-year-old has also been capped over 50 times for Brazil and played for the host nation during the 2014 World Cup.
Chelsea are believed to have re-signed Luiz for a fee of around £34m ($44.6m), having bought him for £21.3m in January 2011 and sold him for a reported £40m two years ago. It remains to be seen, though, whether he is employed by Conte as a defender or as a defensive midfielder at Chelsea, having previously impressed in both roles.
