Chelsea have completed the signing of Leicester City left-back, Ben Chilwell on a 5-year-deal.

The 23-year-old becomes Chelsea’s third signing of the summer, following the arrival of Hakim Ziyech from Ajax and Timo Werner from RB Leipzig.

“I am delighted to be joining Chelsea at this very exciting time for the club and the manager played a massive part in me signing here,” a delighted Chilwell told Chelsea app, The 5th Stand.

“I think every player wants to play for a huge club in their career and I’m no different, but talking to Frank before I signed really made up my mind that I wanted to come and play here.”

In a tweet, he said: “Absolutely buzzing to sign for Chelsea FC. Really exciting time for the club, with such a good squad!”

“Can’t wait to meet all of the lads and everyone around the building. Special thank you to the manager for the faith he has shown in me. A dream come true. Come on you blues 💙”

The England international made 123 appearances for Leicester City (112 starts and 11 as a substitute).
