Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall has been welcomed by his former Leicester City team-mate Ben Chilwell after completing a “really exciting” move to Chelsea.

The midfielder has signed a six-year deal at Stamford Bridge after leaving his boyhood club, who he helped win the Championship last season, to secure an immediate return to the Premier League.

Dewsbury-Hall will be reunited with former Leicester boss Enzo Maresca, who joined Chelsea following Mauricio Pochettino’s departure from the club at the end of the season.

The 25-year-old, who cost Chelsea £30million, was named Leicester’s player of the season in his final campaign at the King Power Stadium after scoring 12 goals and providing 12 assists in 44 league games.

“It’s amazing to be here as a Chelsea player,” said Dewsbury-Hall.

‘This is a club that people grow up watching and hoping to one day play for, so it’s a privilege to be here. I’m really excited to get started and can’t wait to show everyone what I can do.’
