Chelsea confirmed the transfer in a statement.
“‘I’m so happy to sign for Chelsea,’ Mudryk, 22, said of the move.
“This is a huge club, in a fantastic league and it is a very attractive project for me at this stage of my career. I’m excited to meet my new teammates and I’m looking forward to working and learning under Graham Potter and his staff.”
