Leicester City will play Chelsea early August as they go down to Stamford Bridge for a difficult 2nd game of the season. The number of players that has switched between these two clubs are notable.

The recent sales of N’Golo Kantè and Danny Drinkwater are of course known but also in other decades players switch between Chelsea and Leicester. Some were great heroes at Chelsea, others at Leicester City. Dennis Wise and David Speedie both being in these two clubs but with short life with Leicester and happier days at Stamford Bridge

Dennis Rofe and Keith Weller both comes to mind, so does Alan Birchenall, who all three were part of a great Leicester City team in the 70’s. Not to forget Steve Kember either who also had a good few seasons at Filbert Street.

Harry Worley and Muzzy Izzet are two players that moved from the reserves at Chelsea and on to Leicester City. Izzet with great success, Worley more limited as we all can remember. Jeffrey Bruma and Patrick Van Aanholt were both on loan from Chelsea, during the days of “Svennis” and we also would like to mention Frank Sinclair.
