Leicester City announce first signing of January transfer window

Premier League outfit Leicester City have, late on Friday, announced the club’s first addition of the winter transfer window.

The latest player to have linked up with Brendan Rodgers’ troops? Victor Kristiansen.

Reports linking defender Kristiansen with a move to the King Power Stadium, of course, had long been rampant across the European media.

This comes with the gifted Danish youth international having been identified as a prime target to reinforce Leicester’s defensive ranks.

For those not aware, Kristiansen is a 20-year-old left-back, long regarded as a star in the making owing to his fine performances in Denmark with Copenhagen.

His arrival in England being made official this evening, in turn, has come as little surprise.

As per an official statement across the Foxes’ website and social media platforms:

‘Leicester City Football Club is pleased to confirm the signing of talented young defender Victor Kristiansen from Danish Superliga side F.C. Copenhagen, subject to league and international clearance.’

The stopper has put pen to paper on a five-and-a-half year contract at the King Power, in a deal understood to have set Leicester back a sum in the region of £17 million.
