N'Golo Kante was involved in a contact training session with his Chelsea team-mates for the first time since football was suspended.

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante returned to contact training with his team-mates on Tuesday.

Due to personal concerns over the coronavirus pandemic, Kante was given permission to train at home when Chelsea were called back to their Cobham training base in May.

The World Cup winner was at one point reportedly happy to sit out the remainder of the season, with the Premier League due to resume on June 17.

However, Frenchman Kante was back in training with the main group ahead of Chelsea's upcoming meeting with Aston Villa a week on Sunday.

Kante has only made five appearances for the Blues in 2020, having suffered hamstring and groin issues prior to the suspension of major football across Europe.

Frank Lampard's side sit fourth in the Premier League with nine games remaining and will take on Leicester City in the FA Cup quarter-finals on June 28.

The second leg of Chelsea's Champions League last-16 tie against Bayern Munich, who won the first encounter 3-0, is expected to take place following the conclusion of the domestic season.
