Drinkwater signs for Chelsea

Chelsea  have finally signed  Danny Drinkwater  after  Leicester City  accepted an improved offer on transfer deadline day. The England international handed in a transfer request on Monday to try and force a move to Stamford Bridge, but the two clubs were still struggling to agree a fee heading into deadline day.

Chelsea’s first two offers worth £18million and £25m were rejected as Leicester looked to make in excess of £30m for the 27-year-old.

However, Chelsea’s third bid –  understood to be worth £27m, plus add ons which would take it beyond £30m  – was successful, with Antonio Conte landing an extra midfielder after selling Nemanja Matic to Manchester United for £40m.
