Leicester sign Youri Tielemans on loan from Monaco

Leicester have completed the loan signing of midfielder Youri Tielemans from Monaco until the end of the season.

The Foxes – who are understood to have beaten Arsenal, West Ham and Newcastle to Tielemans’ signature – pulled off the signing on Deadline Day.

As part of the deal, Adrien Silva has moved in the opposite direction on the same loan terms, having completed a medical on Wednesday.

Tielemans, 21, spent Thursday meeting and greeting club officials at both the training ground and King Power Stadium, following the completion of a medical.

“The Premier League is one of the best leagues in the world and when I was young, I always watched Premier League games. I’m really happy to be here and I’m excited to get started,” said Tielemans upon the completion of the deal.
