Kante: Love for Premier League, confidence in Conte led to Chelsea move

N'Golo Kante reveals why he decided to make a move to Chelsea from Leicester City this summer.

Kante was a key figure in helping Leicester claim the Premier League title last season and as a result, it was no surprise whatsoever in seeing the French international attracting the interest from a host of top clubs across Europe.

Kante eventually decided to go with a £32million move to Chelsea and prior to his debut for the Blues on Wednesday night, the midfielder has stated that the presence of Antonio Conte as well as his love for the Premier League convinced him to join the London giants.

The 25-year-old told Chelsea TV: "I chose Chelsea because I spoke with the manager here and when I did that, I felt the capacity of the manager and that is why I made my decision.

"And of course I like Premier League football and that is why I decided to stay in the Premier League."
