Ross Barkley joins Nice on a free transfer


NICE, France (AP) — Nice has added Ross Barkley to its roster on a free transfer. Barkley joined the French club just six days after leaving Chelsea by mutual consent. Nice presented its 12th recruit of the summer to fans on Sunday night. The 28-year-old Barkley made 100 appearances for Chelsea and scored 12 goals following his switch from Everton in January 2018. He joined Chelsea as one of English soccer’s most highly rated players but never established himself as a regular at Stamford Bridge. Barkley was presented to Nice fans ahead of the Riviera derby against Monaco.
