Ben Chilwell became a part of Chelsea, where he began his professional career, after the left-back signed a five-year contract with the Blues, the club’s official website writes.
Chilwell said on making the move to Stamford Bridge: “I’m happy to join Chelsea at this very amazing time for the club. I look forward to being part of this young, dynamic Frank Lampard’s squad as we challenge next season for honors. I can’t wait to get started and hopefully it won’t be long before we play on Stamford Bridge in front of the Chelsea fans.”
Marina Granovskaia, director of Chelsea added: “We are very satisfied to have completed our third addition to our exciting team for the coming season. Despite his young age, Ben brings plenty of top-level play experience in the Premier League, Champions League and at international level.”
Since his 18-year-old debut back in October 2015, Chilwell made more than 120 appearances for Leicester City and is one of the Premier League’s most formed and successful full-backs.
