Since making his Leicester City debut in a League Cup tie against Hull City in October 2015, Chilwell has gone on to make 123 appearances for the Club in all competitions, including 99 in the Premier League. He scored four times for the Foxes during that period – most recently in a 1-1 draw against Watford towards the end of last season.
His performances with Leicester City have seen him establish himself at international level, making 11 senior England appearances to date, including a Three Lions debut in a friendly against Switzerland at King Power Stadium in September 2018.
Ben leaves with the best wishes of everyone at Leicester City, and the Club would like to thank him for his contribution to an exciting period for the team and its fans as they look forward to another season of European football.
