Danny Drinkwater has submitted a transfer request to Leicester, Press Association Sport understands.

The midfielder, 27, is a transfer target for Chelsea amid manager Antonio Conte's pursuit of a replacement for Nemanja Matic.

Last summer he signed a new contract to commit his future to the club until 2021, but having acted could yet force a departure before Thursday's conclusion of the summer transfer window.
