Mount: Sterling will take our levels higher

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has been speaking to Sky Sports about the influence his new club team-mate and England colleague Raheem Sterling will have on the Blues squad. 

Mount is convinced Sterling's experience, quality and leadership will boost Chelsea. 

"A top, top guy. Such an experienced player, top class pro," said Mount when asked about Sterling. 

"I’ve been lucky to play with him over the last couple of years with England where he’s captained the team at times. He’s someone who has been there for a very long time. 

"He’s a top player and I’ve learnt a lot off him over the last couple of years so for him to be joining us, he’s only going to bring our levels higher. 

"He’s definitely someone who strives for high levels to win and that’s what we want. We want those players around this group, very excited for him to be here.

"We’ve lost a few that are leaders and he’s coming in and will be someone that will lead, a big presence in the group, a big personality. Hopefully we can win some things together."
