New Chelsea signing, Danny Drinkwater has revealed that he can not just wait to start playing for the Blues.
And that is aftermath of the England international making a switch to Stamford Bridge late on Thursday night.
The midfielder finally completed a move from Leicester City to Chelsea on a five-year deal on summer transfer deadline day.
Furthermore, Drinkwater actually sealed the transfer which is reportedly within the region of £35m plus add-ons to the EPL champions.
The combative player has, however, now made a disclosure that he did not switch to the Bridge for the money.
As a matter of fact, the West Londoners had to apply for a 1am extension to get the paperwork ready on deadline day.
That exactly was the situation as the transfer came down to the wire.
But now, the deal has finally seen the light of day for an estimated fee of abount £35m.
“I am extremely delighted to be a Chelsea player and I can not wait to start playing for the club.” Drinkwater told the Blues’ website.
“It has been a long journey to get here but I am very happy for how it finally turned out.
“And I am looking very much forward to helping the club win more trophies,” Drinkwater summed up.
Chelsea plot increased £35m Drinkwater bid
Chelsea are reportedly set to plot an increased bid in the range of £35million for Leicester City midfielder, Danny Drinkwater.
As a matter of urgency, the Blues are planning to make a second bid for the England international next week.
The West London outfit already tabled an unsuccessful offer of £25m for the 27-year-old earlier during this summer transfer window.
But Chelsea are optimistic a bid in the range of £35m will break the Foxes’ resolve, according to The Telegraph.
However, the report has also claimed that it would likely take a fee which is nearer £40m to land Drinkwater.
Meanwhile, the player himself on his own part reportedly has a keen interest in making a move to Stamford Bridge.
Leicester boss, Craig Shakespeare has, however, warned potential suitors earlier this week that the Foxes are ‘not a selling club’.
