Chelsea legend Didier Drogba will wear the number 15 shirt at the club again after he completed a one-year deal to rejoin the club on Friday, the Daily Star reports.

Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah, who was allocated number 15 when he joined from Basel last season has vacated the shirt and will wear number 17 instead.
Drogba wore the No.15 shirt up until 2006, but following the departure of Damien Duff to Newcastle made the switch to No.11.
