Luis Hernandez joins the Premier League champions

Leicester have made their second signing of the summer on Tuesday.

The 2015-16 Premier League champions have boosted their rearguard for next year.

The Foxes have signed 27-year-old Spanish defender Luis Hernandez.

Hernandez has penned a four year deal at the King Power Stadium.

He’s moved to Leicester on free transfer after his contract at Sporting Gijon expired at the end of last season.

Who is Luis Hernandez?

As reported on the Leicester City website:

The central defender is a product of the Real Madrid youth academy, having represented the club’s B and C sides before a move to Sporting Gijon in 2012, where he soon established himself as a starter.

Hernandez’s influence continued to grow within the team and his 41 appearances during the 2014/15 campaign helped earn Sporting Gijon automatic promotion to La Liga behind league winners Real Betis.

Hernandez becomes Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri’s second signing of the summer following the capture of German keeper Ron-Robert Zieler from Hannover.
