Chelsea have announced the capture of England international Ben Chilwell on a five-year deal.

The 23-year-old has established himself as one of the finest left-backs in the Premier League during his five years at the King Power Stadium and he arrives at Stamford Bridge with 11 England capts to his name.

Leicester had hoped to raise as much as £70m from Chilwell’s departure but they accepted around £50m given the unique circumstances of this summer’s transfer market.

‘I can’t wait to get started and hopefully it won’t be long before we’re playing in front of the Chelsea fans at Stamford Bridge.’
