Ghana international, Daniel Amartey has penned a four-and-a-half-year contract with Leicester, joining from FC Copenhagen.
The Denmark club stated they were made an offer too good to refuse for the 21-year-old, a deal believed to be worth £5 million.
Amartey becomes the second player to join the club, following Demarai Gray.
“It is a great pleasure to join Leicester City,” Amartey told the club’s official website. “I know the club have been interested in signing me for some time and that was a big part of my decision to come here.
“All over Europe, people are talking about Leicester City and how well the club is doing in the Premier League. The team plays exciting, attacking football and I am looking forward to being part of it.”
Amartey is Leicester’s second signing of the month after Demarai Gray and leaves Copenhagen 18 months after joining the club from Swedish side Djurgardens.
