Danny Drinkwater has expressed great delight having reunited with his erstwhile Leicester City teammate N'Golo Kante at Chelsea

Drinkwater who made a Deadline Day move to the London club says he hopes to pick up from where he stopped with Kante, when the two of them were at Leicester City.

The midfield pair were part of Leicester City's 2015/16 Premier League title-winning team and Drinkwater is looking for more of the same at Stamford Bridge.

"I played with N’Golo for a season and there was not really a game I didn’t enjoy playing next to him," Drinkwater told chelseafc.com.

"I am looking forward hopefully to carrying on where we left off."

Coincidentally, Drinkwater's Chelsea debut could come at Leicester on Saturday 9 September.
