Reece James insists 'nothing is going to change' at Chelsea with incoming owner Todd Boehly

Reece James insists Chelsea's ambition will not be dimmed even as they move on from the Roman Abramovich era of excess.

'Nothing is going to change,' the defender said after Chelsea's win over Watford, when incoming owner Todd Boehly greeted Thomas Tuchel's squad following the final whistle.

Abramovich's lavish spending helped Chelsea land 19 major trophies in 19 years. Once the £4.25billion takeover is completed, this summer represents the first test of Boehly's willingness to spend.

'It's been a strange moment for the club with the change in owners,' James said.
