Leicester City confirm signs new midfielder


Leicester City have confirmed the signing of midfielder Youri Tielemans from Monaco for a club-record £40m on a four-year deal.

Tielemans spent the second half of last season on loan at the King Power Stadium, making 13 appearances, scoring three goals and adding four assists.

His performances alerted a number of other top clubs, in the Premier League and Europe, but Leicester have worked hard to secure him on a permanent deal with Rodgers making him his top transfer target.
