The Morocco international, who agreed a five-year deal with Chelsea in February, began his preparations for the 2020/21 season on Saturday afternoon, with his new team-mates absent as the Blues took on Sheffield United in a top-seven clash.
Ziyech, who took part in a light session, was greeted by former Chelsea goalkeeper and current technical and performance adviser Petr Cech.
The 27-year-old effectively began pre-season training for next season, as he has been out of action since March 7, following the curtailment of the Eredivisie season.

Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard intends to integrate the former Ajax forward into group training over the coming weeks.
Despite being registered as a Chelsea player on July 1, Ziyech will not be able to play for the club until next season.
Chelsea have four Premier League matches remaining, starting with Saturday’s trip to Bramall Lane as well as the FA Cup semi-final with Manchester United and the Champions League last-16, second leg with Bayern Munich on August 8.
