Official: Chelsea complete £50m signing of Ben Chilwell

Chelsea have announced the signing of England left-back Ben Chilwell from Leicester City for around £50m (€55.8m).

Chilwell, 23, has signed a five-year deal with Chelsea after leaving his boyhood club.

The talented full-back spoke of his ‘delight’ at linking up with Frank Lampard at Stamford Bridge.

“I am delighted to be joining Chelsea at this very exciting time for the club,” Chilwell said. “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.”

Despite being only 23, Chilwell is already very experienced at the top level of English football.

He made his debut for Leicester at the age of 18 and has gone on to make over 120 appearances.

Since making his England debut against Switzerland in September 2018, Chilwell has been capped eleven times by the Three Lions.
