Saul Niguez reveals reason for new Chelsea shirt number

Saul Niguez has explained why he picked number 17 to wear at Chelsea.

The Spanish midfielder moved to Stamford Bridge from boyhood club Atletico Madrid on deadline day.

"When I played with Atlético happily, I did it with 17," Saul said of his number with the Blues.

"They gave me the opportunity to play with this number and I hope it brings me a lot of happiness."

The 26-year-old has signed on a season-long loan deal with the option to buy next summer.
