Chelsea sign Drinkwater from Leicester City

Chelsea have signed midfielder Danny Drinkwater from Leicester on a five-year contract, the Premier League champions have announced.
The 27-year-old will be reunited with former Foxes teammate N'Golo Kante after the pair starred in Leicester's shock title win in 2016.

Drinkwater has not played for Leicester this season due to a thigh injury but could be in line to make his Chelsea debut against his former club at the King Power Stadium on Sept. 9.
Leicester said in a statement they had received a club-record fee for Drinkwater, with reports indicating it is in the region of £35 million.

Drinkwater told his new club's website: "I'm delighted to be a Chelsea player and can't wait to get started.
"It has been a long journey to get here but I am very happy and am looking forward to helping the club win more trophies.''

Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo added: "Danny is not only a Premier League winner but also has Champions League experience which will be invaluable for us this season.
"He is a typically combative English midfielder with a cultured passing technique and his arrival significantly strengthens our midfield options."
