Leicester fans have taken to Twitter in excitement after the club confirmed the arrival of Youri Tielemans from Monaco until the end of the season, with Adrien Silva heading in the opposite direction as reported by the Foxes’ official website.
The 21-year-old midfielder arrives at the King Power Stadium to huge fanfare, as he is a player of real pedigree and talent having been very highly-rated at Anderlecht before moving to Monaco.
The French club have endured a woeful season so far under Leonardo Jardim, then Thierry Henry, and then Jardim again, and they are currently sat just one place off the bottom in Ligue 1 with relegation a real possibility.

Understandably, fans of the Midlands-based club are extremely excited at the arrival of the Belgian international, who has scored five league goals in 20 appearances so far this season from midfield.
If their reactions on Twitter are anything to go by, they’re very, very happy that the deal has finally been done…
Europa League football here we come!
