Chelsea have completed the signing of Ben Chilwell from Leicester City in a deal worth £50 million ($66m), the club confirmed on Wednesday.
The left-back has signed a five-year contract with Frank Lampard’s team after they reached an agreement with the Foxes this week.
“I am delighted to be joining Chelsea at this very exciting time for the club,” Chilwell told the club’s website.
“I’m looking forward to being a part of this young, dynamic squad led by Frank Lampard as we challenge for honours next season. 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.”
Chilwell came through Leicester’s youth academy to become a key player for the senior team, making 123 appearances and helping them to win the Premier League title in 2016.
