Leicester City Complete Signings Of Filip Benkovic And Caglar Soyuncu



Leicester City have confirmed the signing of Turkish international defender Caglar Soyuncu from Bundesliga side Freiburg for an undisclosed fee.

Caglar Soyuncu deal comes on the same day that Filip Benkovic arrives at the King Power Stadium, with the two deals believed to be worth a combined fee of £33.5m.

Soyuncu was linked with a move to Arsenal at the start of the summer but has now agreed a five-year contract that promises to keep him a Leicester player until 2023.

For now, the deal remains subject to a work permit being granted.

Benkovic made 30 appearances in all competitions for Zagreb last season and helped them clinch the Croatian league title

“Filip is an exciting young player who has the potential to develop even more at Leicester,” Leicester manager Claude Puel said in a statement. “He has made a big contribution to Dinamo Zagreb over the last three years and has also benefited from experiencing European football.

“I know he will give us some great options and competition in the squad and I’m delighted to have him here.”
