According to the 21-year-old, the robbers entered his property on Tuesday, 14 September, while he was away with the Blues for their 2021/22 Champions League opener against Zenit St Petersburg.

James has revealed that none of his jewellery was at the house, but added that the individuals who broke into the house did make off with a safe that included his Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and 2020 UEFA European Championship medals.

"On the evening of the 14th of September 2021 when I was playing for my club in the return of the Champions League, a group of cowardly robbers broke into my house. They managed to collectively lift a heavy safe containing some personal items of mine into their car," James announced on Instagram.

"I never keep any jewellery of mine in my house so all that was contained in the safe were my Champions League winners medal and Super Cup winners medal and the runners-up medal for the Euro 2020. These medals were won representing Chelsea and England – honours that can never be taken away from me whether or not I have the physical medals to prove it.

"Nevertheless, I am appealing to all my Chelsea and England fans to help identify and turn in these low life individuals who will never be able to rest easy as the evidence is mounting against them.

"The police, my advisers and Chelsea FC (and many others) are all behind me as we have firm leads on who the perpetrators are. We are closing in on them. Luckily, no one was present during the break in but I want to let all of you know I am safe and well. I really do appreciate having the platform to tell you all about my misfortune and I hope together we can catch these individuals and deliver justice where it is due."
