Foxes Sign Defender Daniel Amartey from FC Copenhagen

Leicester City have signed Ghanaian defender Daniel Amartey from Danish side FC Copenhagen on a four-year deal.

The fee, while officially undisclosed, is believed to be in the region of £5m.

The 21-year-old defender, who has won six international caps, played 63 games for Copenhagen after joining them in 2014.

“It’s a great pleasure to join Leicester City. 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,” he said.

“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’m looking forward to being part of it.”

Amartey, who is an international colleague of Leicester City wide-man Jeffrey Schlupp, trained with his new club-mates for the first time on Friday.
