Gary Cahill has been through a "mad couple of weeks" but now feels fully at home with Chelsea as he prepares for his debut in Saturday's FA Cup tie against QPR.

Cahill completed a £7million switch from Bolton after finally agreeing personal terms, but was not included in the squad for the Barclays Premier League goalless draw at Norwich. The England defender, 26, jetted out with the rest of his team-mates to Majorca for some warm-weather training and believes the trip has been a good bonding exercise.

"It has been a mad couple of weeks for me hasn't it?," Cahill said. "I came in on the Tuesday, trained for just a few days before the game at Norwich and then we came straight over on a plane to Majorca. Training has been really good and it has been enjoyable to get to know the lads - I know everyone a lot better now."
