Championship outfit Leicester City have, on Saturday, announced the signing of a long-time member of the defensive setup at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The player in question? Conor Coady.
Stopper Coady, of course, is fresh off a surprise loan stint away from Molineux, which saw him line out for boyhood club Everton across the duration of the 2022/23 campaign.
Despite notching 24 league appearances in the colours of the Toffees, however, the brass at Goodison Park ultimately came to the decision not to make his arrival a permanent one.
With Wolves open to the sale of their former captain, this, in turn, opened the door for other interested parties to swoop.
And, as alluded to above, on Saturday, one such club have done so in decisive fashion.
In a post across their official website and social media platforms a short time ago, Leicester City, eyeing a swift return to the Premier League on the back of a shock relegation to The Championship, announced:
‘Leicester City Football Club is delighted to confirm the permanent signing of central defender Conor Coady from Wolverhampton Wanderers, subject to league approval.’
Coady has put pen to paper on a three-year contract at the King Power Stadium, set to add some much-needed experience to new boss Enzo Maresca’s central defensive ranks after the expiration of Caglar Soyuncu’s deal.
