Leicester City confirm Polish starlet

Leicester City have completed the signing of Polish international Bartosz Kapustka.

The Foxes announced the news on their official website, confirming the 19-year-old would wear the number 14 shirt after signing a 5-year deal at the King Power Stadium.

He is now the 5th signing Claudio Ranieri has made this summer, already adding Luis Hernandez, Ron-Robert Zieler, Papy Mendy and club record signing Ahmed Musa. Although one of their biggest signings could arguably be the new deal that top scorer Jamie Vardy signed this summer.

And the Polish youngster has already got a taste of life in a Leicester Shirt, coming off the bench in their 4-2 defeat to Barcelona in the International Champions Cup on Wednesday. Ahmed Musa hit a brace, as the club prepared for their league opener against Hull on Saturday 13th.

Kapustka was included in Poland’s Euro 2016 squad, playing in all 4 of the nation’s fixtures, but wasn’t one of the penalty takers in their shoot-out defeat to Portugal.
