It’s been three years since N’Golo Kante swapped the Midlands for London. In that time the France international has won three trophies, forming part of Chelsea’s midfield.
Squawka tweeted out a celebratory tweet about Kante and his three-year anniversary on Tuesday morning, and fans were in reminiscing mood over the Frenchman’s time at Stamford Bridge.

Here is a selection of tweets from fans after Kante celebrated three years at Chelsea:
