Chelsea signed Danny Drinkwater from Leicester City on transfer deadline day. He was the last of Chelsea’s six summer signings and Chelsea could only confirm the deal in the early hours of Friday morning.
The 27-year-old England international admitted that he hasn’t had a transfer like this before and revealed he’s happy with how the transfer eventually panned out.
He told the official Chelsea website: “Never!” he said when asked if he has had a transfer window like this before. “My emotions have been all over the place. There has been frustration, excitement, I have been nervous and I am just grateful the transfer is done.
“Leicester has been great for me but I am looking to carry on from the season before last when we won the Premier League there and I want to win more trophies, which Leicester have understood and where better to do it than Chelsea.
“I am at a good age now to kick on. I have gained a lot of experience in playing games and hopefully that will show.”
