Sky Sports's Jim White is mostly known for his work on TV on transfer deadline day, but here he is breaking transfer news in the middle of July instead.

According to the man with the most famous yellow tie in football, N'Golo Kante's medical at Chelsea has been completed, and presumably, everything's checked out to our satisfaction.  All that remains now is to sign the paperwork before the official confirmations and announcements.

After weeks of inaction while Antonio Conte was busy at Euro 2016, Chelsea have snapped into overdrive to get this deal done over the last few days.

Even if Kante signs tonight, he probably won't be expected to join up with the rest of the squad in pre-season until a bit later, just like all our other players who were busy at the Euros.  (And Kante made it further than anyone else in the squad, losing the final with France to Portugal.)

In any case, better find a good pen or two and get this thing signed!
