England Defender Completes Chelsea Switch

Last updated : 26 August 2020 By Three Lions

Ben Chilwell has left Leicester City and signed an 5-year contract at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea paying a reported fee of £45m for the left-back.

Having made his England debut against Switzerland in 2018, the 23-year-old has quickly established himself as Gareth Southgate's first choice in his position and a big year awaits with his new club playing in the Champions League and the Three Lions planning for the delayed Euro 2020 tournament.

"I'm looking forward to being a part of this young, dynamic squad led by Frank Lampard as we challenge for honours," said Chilwell.

No longer involved with England but still going strong at Leicester is Vardy's former team-mate Jamie Vardy and the experienced striker has added a further year to his contract with the Foxes after another excellent season in front of goal.
