Chelsea have announced the squad numbers of their newest addition and it means a change of number for fellow new man Abdul Baba Rahman.
Pedro has taken the number 17 shirt that Rahman had originally chosen on his arrival from FC Augsburg, a number the 23-year-old had worn at his former club.
The Ghanaian defender has now switched to number six, which was vacated by Nathan Ake after his loan move to Watford.

Football players can be quite serious about their kit numbers and it was a kind act by the defender to allow Pedro to take the shirt after it was already handed to him.
The former Barcelona man wore the number seven at the Nou Camp, but that shirt is held by Brazilian midfielder Ramires.
THE THICK OF IT
The Chelsea new boys are expected to be shoved straight into action for the Blues when they travel to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, and both will be hoping to hit the ground running.
Mourinho has confirmed both players are in the squad for the trip to the Hawthorns and reports have even claimed that Branislav Ivanovic will be dropped to accommodate the new left-back, with Cesar Azpilicueta switching to right-back.
Chelsea will be looking for their first win of the new season against the Black Country club after picking up one point from their first two matches.
It appears Pedro will fight it out with Willian for a place on the right side of the attack and may also be put straight into the starting line-up after the Brazilian failed to impress against Manchester City or Swansea.
