Chelsea have signed England left-back Ben Chilwell from Leicester on a five-year deal for £45m.
Chilwell is Chelsea’s third addition of the summer after the arrivals of winger Hakim Ziyech, 27, from Ajax and striker Timo Werner, 24, from RB Leipzig.
The defender, 23, is a Leicester academy product who made his debut for the club in 2015, and had a contract with the Foxes until 2024.
He missed the final five matches of the 2019-20 season with a foot injury.
Chelsea took fourth place and a Champions League place at the expense of Leicester on the final day of the Premier League season in July.
