Moises Caicedo is already the brunt of jokes at Cobham following his £115million British-record transfer from Brighton.

The Ecuador international completed his dream Chelsea move on Monday after brutally snubbing Liverpool and it appears he has needed no time at all to settle into his new surroundings.

That’s because Ben Chilwell has posted an Instagram story mocking his new team-mate as he attempted to brave an ice bath.

“Can’t handle the ice bath bro?” Chilwell posted on Instagram while videoing a sheepish Caicedo creeping into the ice bath.

Caicedo had covered his upper body in a towel as he slowly edged down the stairs and into the freezing cold pool.

Other players and staff members can be seen giggling as Caicedo covered his face with his towel.

The 21-year-old is believed to have been in contact with a number of senior players ahead of his move to Chelsea.

He is already following the crux of his new team-mates on Instagram as he prepares to potentially make his debut this weekend at West Ham.

Speaking to the club’s website, Caicedo explained his love for Chelsea after previously being pictured in a Chelsea shirt several years ago in Ecuador.

“Makelele and Kante were an inspiration to me,” he declared on his first day at Cobham.

“They were so humble on the pitch. I think I can say we share similar qualities, but they were better. But now I am going to give everything for this club because they did so much for me.

“When I was a kid, I supported Chelsea and used to watch the games. Now it is amazing to be here. It is one of the biggest clubs in the world.

“I can’t wait to start with the guys, to give my best and to write my own story.”

Caicedo appeared to force his way out of Brighton despite signing a new long-term contract with the club earlier in the year.
