Leicester City Sign French Defender Wesley Fofana On Five-year Contract

Leicester City have signed Wesley Fofana from St Etienne, with the French central defender agreeing to a five-year deal, the Premier League club said on Friday.

Leicester did not disclose the transfer fee but British media reported the club paid around 30 million pounds ($38.75 million) for the 19-year-old.

“I’m very happy to be here. I’ve watched Leicester City closely since they won the

title and they’re a top club in the Premier League,” Fofana said in a statement.

“I know I will learn a lot from the players and the manager here, which is one of the main reasons I came. I can’t wait to get started.”
