New Chelsea midfielder will link up with former Leicester City team-mate possibly starting at King Power

Danny Drinkwater hopes to pick up where he left off when he reunites with N'Golo Kante at Chelsea after his Deadline Day move.

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

"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.
