N’Golo Kante is excited to see Danny Drinkwater join him at Chelsea after the England international’s £35 million move from Leicester City on transfer deadline day.
Drinkwater has yet to play for Chelsea after he was an unused substitute against his former club last weekend before missing the opening Champions League group game against Qarabag due to a calf injury.
“I am pleased for him to come into Chelsea,” Kante said after the 6-0 win over Qarabag at Stamford Bridge. “We need everyone, especially after our time together in Leicester. I hope it could be something like Leicester or even more, I hope.
“We did a special year together in Leicester to win the league. It wasn’t expected and I really enjoyed the season that I spent with him and I am happy that he chose to join Chelsea and I am happy to play with him again.”
