Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante has agreed to join Saudi Arabian champions Al-Ittihad at the expiration of his contract.

Kante departs Chelsea after seven seasons in which he won the Premier League, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and FA Cup.

"N’Golo’s impact and influence during his time at Chelsea cannot be overstated," said co-sporting directors Laurence Stewart and Paul Winstanley on the club's official website.

"His tireless performances in midfield contributed to several trophy wins and has guaranteed him a place in the club’s history.

"We wish him well as he embarks on the next chapter in his career."

Kante's first taste of life in the Premier League came at Leicester City after he signed from French club Caen in August 2015.

In a historic 2015/16 debut season, he helped the Foxes produce one of the greatest stories in the competition's history, featuring in 37 of their 38 matches as Leicester were crowned Premier League champions.

Everyone at the Premier League wishes Kante well on his next adventure.
