Chelsea signed Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund in the January transfer window for a five-year deal, but he remained in Germany until the end of the season.

Pulisic is in top mood ahead of next season and cut short his holiday to resume work with the team during pre-season.

The 20-year-old American has admitted that it’s an honour to play for Chelsea.

“There is so much success and history here and it’s a huge honour to be part of this club,” Pulisic said in America.

Pulisic has also revealed that he chose to honour Chelsea in his new Nike boots.

During a Q & A session in Japan, Pulisic also talked about his new Mercurial Nike boots.

“I have been with Mercurial for as long as I can remember,” said Pulisic. “I started very young.

“I was lucky enough to help Nike design this boot and I love the colours. There is Chelsea blue, the American flag and I really like the overall design. It’s really clean.”

And he’s also excited to play under Frank Lampard.

Pulisic said: “I watched him [Lampard] of course, and it’s great to have him here helping us. He was a great leader as a player and now he’s here as the coach and he’s giving us really important information. It’s great to have him on this side.

“There are top players at this club. I knew that coming in here and it’s only going to make me better; it’s going to improve my game working every day with these guys and I am excited for the challenge.”
