Ladies and gentlemen, it's happening.

What started as a few stray reports in France weeks and months ago, vehemently denied by sources closer to Leicester for almost as long, has now turned into a deluge of echoing confirmations from all sides.  N'Golo Kante to Chelsea is happening.

Even the Leicester Mercury, the last bastion of local hopes has joined the party.

RMC and France Football led the way this morning after L'Equipe's report last night got people excited.  That proved a bit premature (they were just re-reporting the Le Parisien scoop from earlier this week), but that hardly matters now.  It's happening, and it's happening soon.

When Antonio Conte said Chelsea will be making new signings "in the coming days", he may not have meant that just as a turn of phrase, but as an actual and literal expectation and timeline.

Kante's still on post-Euro vacation, but he's expected to undergo a medical very soon and then eventually join up with the Chelsea squad who jetted off to Austria tonight for training camp.

Welcome, N'Golo Kante. It's an exciting time to join.
