Why I turned down Chelsea - Kramaric

Leicester City's new signing Andrej Kramaric tells BBC East Midlands Today the prospect of playing more regular Premier League football was behind his decision to turn down a move to Chelsea.

The league leaders were among those interested in signing the 23-year-old Croatia striker, but he opted to join the Foxes for a fee of around £9m.

"Chelsea is the biggest team in the Premier League, but I chose Leicester because I feel something good here. I think I will play much more here and I hope we will stay in the Premier League," he says.

"The Premier League is the biggest league in the world with the most world-class players and I wanted to feel it."
